Anyone remember Peter Jackson having humour and charm as well as a nice eye for detail? The people behind this do.
This is a very admirable horror/comedy that nods towards PJ and to be fair is a stunning feature-debut from Jalmari Helander. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll say this is a dark twist on the Santa Claus legend, very nicely executed. I've been following the Scandinavian horror "scene" for a little while after Dead Snow caught me completely by surprise and this is another snow-bound movie that delivers.
There's less blood/gore/violence in this than I was expecting - which I do like, but it didn't detract from the movie at all, I'd almost suggest this suitable for teen/tweens aside from some heavy(ish) bad language.
Will make a worthy purchase - go youtube the trailer.
