Yes, dear readers, you can finally rest easy: Jalmari Helander’s upcoming horror flick “Rare Exports” has a full-length trailer that’s ready and willing to destroy every jolly good thing you’ve ever heard about Santa Claus. This film continues to rest at the very tip top of my must-see list, and if that means I have to wait forever and a day to check it, then so be it. The premise is pretty simple: Contrary to popular belief, Santa Claus isn’t a figment of our imagination. In fact, he’s quite real, and he’s cruel, homicidal, and incredibly pissed off. How much more do you really need to know?
“Rare Exports” will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival, so if you’re going to be in attendance, definitely check it out.
