Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

4

'Tis the season to be terrified...

This enjoyably grotesque and blackly comic ho-ho-horror will scare the nuts right out of your stocking.

Finnish director Jalmari Helander has created a masterful mash-up of The Thing and a really Grimm fairy tale.

Saucer-eyed Onni Tommila is riveting as a petrified kid determined to find out if the Christmas Eve child snatcher is the real Santa Claus.

It’s got heart as well as grisly action (like Super 8, there’s a strong ’80s kiddie-horror vibe), but only the toughest of tinies will sit it out.
