Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
This one of those strange out of left field movies, there really is no other way of saying it. This is Finnish movie featuring a dark take on the legend of Santa Claus. Though more so I want to say it was based on Krampus legend more than anything. The movie begins with a group of men who discover the tomb of being they call Santa Claus who is encased in ice. Turns out, they just unearthed an evil they do not understand.
There's a little boy who knows exactly what is going, even though his father does not believe him at first. Until they both discover strange going ons that lead them to the unimaginable truth.
One thing I will warn you about is I hope you are okay with the sight of naked men, especially full frontal nudity, as this movie does not shy away from that at all. The movie gives us an interesting take on Santa, his elves, and how Santa can be everywhere at once. It is interesting as it blends the mythology of Santa and Krampus all in one.
It is definitely recommended to check this movie out at least once. Even with it being in Finnish with subtitles, it is still an interesting movie to see.
By the way, Happy Krampusnacht everyone!!
