Dick Maas’ yuletide slasher Sint (review here) stirred up quite a bit of controversy when it was released in its home country, the Netherlands. Just looking at the DVD artwork with the new Americanized title, I fully expect to hear about some angry American parents after they mistakenly pick this one up for their kiddies.
While Rare Exports stole the majority of the Yuletide terrors attention (and rightly so), we're also big fans of the Santa slasher flick Sint (Saint), if only for the Black Peters. Man, that sounded weird. In any event three new clips are waiting for you! Dig 'em!
Saint or Sint, the new action/horror hybrid slasher flick from Dutch director Dick Maas, had its North American premiere earlier this week at the Tribeca Film Fest.
Slasher movies are awesome. And while I find that the vast majority of new ones leave a lot to be desired when compared to their superior 80s counterparts, I'm always glad to see someone take a, ahem, stab at creating something new. From the Press Release
As we mentioned yesterday, with the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival starting on April 20th, over the next couple of days we'll be providing updated info and screening dates/times for all the genre films playing at the fest. On tap for today we have two new stills and the schedule for the Dutch film Sint (or Saint). Synopsis:
We've been talking about the Dutch film Sint (or Saint) for a while now, and thanks to the fact that it's having its North American premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, a fresh batch of stills have come out way. Synopsis:
Remember all that hubbub about Silent Night, Deadly Night here in the States when it first came out? Parents were up in arms because it had a killer dressed as Santa Claus. Ah, stupidity! How we love when you rear your head! The Dutch seem to have no such problems. In fact their new killer Christmas flick Sint is breaking records overseas.
How do you think conservative culture warriors that rant and rave every year about the so-called "War on Christmas" are going to react when they find out about this new wave of dangerous Santa movies coming out of Europe and Scandinavia of late? For that matter, how do you say Silent Night, Deadly Night in Dutch? Just say Sint, I suppose.
