Movie Review: Rare Exports

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
This Finnish horror film sees archaeologists dig up a massive grave mound in Lapland which contains the original Santa. This leads to reindeer carnage, idiot kids in peril, poverty stricken locals wielding guns, much chomping of gingerbread, creepy elves and Santa is an ancient supernatural being who is rather more sinister than present day Christmas celebrations would have you believe. This has an advent calendar, deadpan humour and the threatened, maligned and powerful get all the petty power in the end. This was good.

Best Lines:
“What the hell did they dig up?”

“Centuries to build this mound, you have 24 hours to open it.”
