From the Press Release:
Join Grimm Up North as we celebrate the Christmas 2011 DVD and Blu-ray release of RARE EXPORTS from Icon Home Entertainment and SAINT from Metrodome Distribution.

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.
