Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale: It’s Christmas in northern Finland, and an ‘archeological’ dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father capture him and attempt to sell Santa to a multi-national corporation. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. A darkly comic gem soon to be required perennial holiday viewing.

Saint: It’s Christmas, and a swath of brutal murders and mysterious disappearances leave the city in shock. Then when eye-witnesses report sightings of Saint Nicholas flying over rooftops, it becomes apparent that this will be one Christmas they’ll never forget. As the killing escalates, one ex-cop unearths a dark secret behind the famous legend. Buried deep in church vaults, a beloved Saint Nicholas is revealed as a vengeful killer from the past.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
