Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
Directed by Jalmari Helander
In this darkly comic gem, it's Christmas Eve in northern Finland, and an archeological dig has just unearthed Santa Claus. But this Santa isn't one you want coming to town. When local children begin disappearing, Pietari and his father capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the corporation sponsoring the dig. (In Finnish with English subtitles.) Guest Curator, Elijah Wood: "Absolutely adore this genre/action/adventure Christmas movie. The impending doom of a giant evil Santa Claus caught in melting ice, whilst his creepy old man elves reek havoc, is fantastic dark Christmas fun."
A Finnish archeological dig has unearthed a very dark Santa Claus in this acclaimed gem.
Cast: Onni Tommila, Jorma Tommila, Tommi Korpela
Love this movie! I was it at least once every year!
I usually don't watch films with subtitles, but I make an exception for this brilliant gem of a Christmas story. I also never give five skulls unless the film is excellent. This is not really a Horror film, meaning it's watchable for kids as well as grownups.
A longtime favorite
Oh man! You've got to see this one to believe it! Such a classic! Christmas wouldn't be the same without it, Krampus, It's A Wonderful Life, and the cartoon version of A Christmas Carol.
Great Xmas horror film.
