Tis the season to purchase American distribution rights to Finnish movies about evil Santa Clauses, apparently. Fa la la la la, la la la – Well, you know what I mean. Adam Yauch’s Oscilloscope has snapped up US rights to Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.
Yauch said about the movie,
I’m tempted to say it’s like the Coen brothers meets ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,’ but ‘Rare Exports’ is so original in it’s feel and approach that I’ll refrain from such comparisons and simply say — gas up your snowmobiles, load your shotguns and smoke ’em if you got ’em — ’cause we intend to uncage this sucker in theaters for the holidays.
Considering the plot begins when an archaeological team accidentally discovers “an evil Santa Claus,” I’m already preparing to get in line when the movie gets released at the end of the year, following a planned US premiere at Austin’s Fantastic Fest.
