Rare Exports: Dec. 17-19

December 13, 2010

You better watch out, 'cause Santa Claus is coming to town, and he doesn't care if you've been nice. In the tradition of Joe Dante (Gremlins), Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is a magical, creepy new spin on the tale of Father Christmas. It's December, and a team of American scientists are swarming around a village in the Finnish Arctic. They've apparently come across an incredible discovery, proof that Santa Claus is real! Except this isn't your standard Jolly Old Saint Nick, but something much, much worse. "The sheer fun of classic kids' adventure movies is perfectly captured and slightly lampooned in the deliciously winning Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale." (Jay Weissberg, Variety)
