DC’s Holiday Shudder Pick of the Weekend – Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale



If you have the horror streaming service Shudder, and lord knows you should, then you already have your hot ticket for the most obscure bit of holiday fun you could possibly have all weekend! Our pick for the upcoming holiday weekend is none other than Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale… a film so wonderfully weird it pretty much defies all rational description!

In this darkly comic gem, it’s Christmas Eve in northern Finland, and an archeological dig has just unearthed Santa Claus. But this Santa isn’t one you want coming to town. When local children begin disappearing, Pietari and his father capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the corporation sponsoring the dig. (In Finnish with English subtitles.)

Guest Curator Elijah Wood says of the film: “[I] absolutely adore this genre/action/adventure Christmas movie. The impending doom of a giant evil Santa Claus caught in melting ice, whilst his creepy old man elves reek havoc, is fantastic dark Christmas fun.”
