Rare Exports puts the nightmare in Christmas

Posted By on Thu, Dec 23, 2010 at 12:48 PM

If you think you've experienced a nightmarish holiday before, check out the unwelcome surprises in the Finnish holiday horror Rare Exports. It has humorous moments, but the film follows some of the conventions of horror genre classics. When an exploration company starts treasure hunting at what looks like a massive burial tomb in Finland, it unearths some odd clues as to what's below. A la Jurassic Park or Alien, the corporation can't wait to mine these mysterious resources. A young boy soon realizes that something is amiss. He's being watched, and children are disappearing. His father is more concerned with the slaughter of wild reindeer. And soon, Santa may be making some unwanted rounds. It screens at Zeitgeist starting Dec. 25.
