I was deloighted to see the trailer and some clips today from an upcoming Holiday Horror movie entitled “Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale”. I have gotta say watching Christmas horror films are truely an amazing way to warm up to the holidays with your friends and some good christmas season ale. So it’s always a pleasure to welcome a new holiday horror movie into the Christmas season and this one looks like truely amazing stocking stuffer! Set to be released on Decemeber 3rd this movie’s got quite an awesome premise and just by the preview alone you can tell it’s gonna be ALOT of fun.
This Finnish movie, directed by Jalmari Helander is destined to be a holiday cult classic-check out the official synopsis: “It’s the eve of Christmas in northern Finland and an “archeological” dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When all the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. What ensues is a wildly humorous nightmare – a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern day morality. RARE EXPORTS: A CHRISTMAS TALE is a re-imagining of the most classic of all childhood fantasies, and is a darkly comic gem soon to be required perennial holiday viewing.”
Hopefully this movie makes it to theaters here in Portland because it’d be alot of fun to check it out this christmas on the big screen. I’m still hoping that someday somebody makes an awesome Christmas movie about the Krampus-that’s a sure-fire Christmas horror flick-maybe you could even have Santa fighting the evil beast along with a few of his elves? Damn maybe I need to script that movie!! If you don’t know what the Krampus is you need to do some research it’s pretty frightening, enough so that I did a blog last year devoted entirely to it’s evil ways. Anyway check out the trailer for Rare Exports!
