Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
Full disclosure, I have yet to watch Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale but it seems like a hoot and a half. The film is a Finnish fantasy action horror film and features a premise where a group of people is somehow able to capture Santa Claus. It turns out, however, that Santa Claus isn’t some good guy who delivers treats.
No, he’s a bad guy who delivers tricks. Well, not so much tricks as say murderous rampages? The trailer does a good job setting up the premise by basically taking the old “he knows if you’ve been bad or good” and cranks that up to 11.
Basically, anyone who does anything slightly naughty ends up in a pile of self-pieces. May make you re-think saying a curse word, eh?
As the film is Finnish, you’re going to have to enjoy a good deal of reading because there are subtitles, unless there’s an English dub on the internet, which there very well could be for all I know.
The cast isn’t too well known in Western countries outside of Scandinavia but if you’re a fan of wild Christmas films and a little bit of horror then this film may be exactly the thing for you.
