Forget Bad Santa. And prepare yourself for one hell of a sick, demented, depraved Santa.

In Finnish film, "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale", get ready for quite likely the most disturbing Christmas-themed movie ever.

Based on "Rare Exports Inc", a 2003 short film directed by Jalmari Helander and Juuso Helander, "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale" is a horror comedy with a decidedly delightful twist.

Here's the plot synopsis from the official site.

A film for those who think
they don't believe in Santa Claus anymore

In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 metres deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up!

This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Claus.

Based on award winning shorts of director Jalmari Helander that have already acquired a cult reputation in the internet.


The awfully miserable official synopsis may just leave you cold with little to no expectation to the film. A look at the Wikipedia entry one might just cheer you up:

The film focuses on a group of local reindeer herders whose Christmas is disturbed by excavations on the mountain. A scientist has ordered a team of workers to dig open what he calls "the largest burial mound in the world". An explosive used by the team uncovers what is referred to as a 'sacred grave'. However, the occupant of the grave is still alive. Soon, the reindeer important to the local people are mysteriously killed, and children and supplies begin to disappear from the town. It emerges that the occupant is the source of the original Santa Claus myth; a supernatural being who, rather than rewarding good children, punishes the naughty. One family, however, manages to catch the culprit in a trap, and plans to sell it to the scientist to cover the losses caused by his excavation.

Check out the official trailer and the original short film right after the jump.
