Happy Holidays From Broken Penguins and evil Santas

Wishing you and your family all the best this holiday season!

In celebration, I’d like to share a trailer from the Finnish movie Rare Exports. It’s about Santa Claus — one that eats children. I saw it as part of the Toronto International Film Festival a few years back and now it’s all I think about when I see Santa. It also reminded me of the Futurama episode where robo-Santa guns you down.

Did you know Santa was fairly sinister guy until Coca-Cola turned him into a holly, jolly guy that likes to drink sugary, syrupy soda? It depends on which culture you’re looking at but Santa has commercial, Pagan and Biblical origins.

You can get Rare Exports on Amazon or on iTunes (since Amazon hasn’t worked out their drone delivery option yet).
