The Christmas lights are up in Oxford Street, London there even up in my home town of Paisley but scrooge nationalists (who at this time of year regard as the scarecrow from Wizard of Oz, ‘If I Only Had A Brain’)who combined Guy Fawkes with Christmas but even better Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is out on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday. I feel the festive season is upon us.
Driven by his curiosity regarding a supposed archeological excavation located on a mountain near his remote rural home, young and adventurous Pietari stumbles upon the shocking, ugly truth about the being known the world over as Santa Claus.Local legend suggests the jolly old man in the red suit was in reality a supernatural creature that, rather than rewarding children for being good, severely punished those who were naughty. When a large herd of reindeer on which Pietari’s father depends for his livelihood is found slaughtered, the townsfolk suspect it is the work of hungry wolves that have crossed into the area from the nearby slopes. But when all the local children mysteriously disappear overnight, Pietari fears the scientists on the mountain have unearthed something extremely sinister and very much alive from what is apparently “the largest burial mound in the world”.
Here are two clips to get you in the mood.
