Today we’ve got a brand new, red-band trailer for Rare Exports, the Finnish killer Santa Claus movie. (Remember kids, Scandinavians are almost as awesomely crazy as the Japanese). To recap:
American Christmas Movie:
- A magic spell turns Tim Allen into Santa Claus. He gets fat, grows an unshavable beard, saves Christmas, hilarity ensues.
Finnish Christmas Movie:
- A mining company accidentally unleashes a killer Santa Claus who had been trapped deep inside a mountain for millions of years. The Santa Claus goes on a killing rampage, until the townspeople lure him into a trap using a severed pig’s head as bait, and decide to hold him for ransom.
Directed by Jalmari Helander, opens in the US December 3rd. [via G4]
I feel like Christmas lights set to Slayer really sum up the essence of this film:
God I love that.
