Verdict on Kratt

Kratt is a fantasy horror comedy that sees a group of children accidentally release a dangerous magical creature. It sees the siblings starting to enjoy their summer with the freedom created until they run out of ideas for the magical creature. Elsewhere, there is a battle between locals and a businessman who wants to take their sacred areas.

When it comes to the kid’s side of the film, there is plenty of fun with what they get to possess. It feels like a natural set of events they would use a slave creature for. When it comes to the cult side of things, it takes a different tone, which becomes almost too serious for the rest of the film.

In the performances, we get the wacky characters that come together, where the performances make everything even better.

Final ThoughtsKratt is a fun wacky fantasy horror comedy.
