Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

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

If you want an inspirational childs movie that also has hundreds of old man penis in half the shots, this is the film for you. Not sure where the venn diagram is on that audience, though.

A very simple creepy retelling of the Santa Clause story. Well done.

Not many can do a horror/comedy campy holiday movie and execute. I enjoyed this one.
