Plot: the people living near the Korvatunturi mountain are about to find out the truth about Santa Claus.
This is not a Christmas horror movie for the young ones. Just so you know going in. It’s about some men that go digging near the Korvatunturi mountain and find what they believe is a burial site. A little boy overhears all this and is convinced that it is Santa’s burial site. So, he starts reading about the original Santa, Joulupukki, who was a mean Santa. Destroyed some naughty kids.
Anyway, they end up trapping a man they believe to be Santa and they decide to sell him. Which is when the story starts to really take off. Because honestly, the beginning is a little slow, but the end is smart and beautifully done.
The little boy is a straight up gangsta. It’s original, it followed rules, had a sensational script and a enjoyable story. Don’t go in looking for gore though. It isn’t like that. But be warned, there are a lot of dead reindeer which I didn’t need to see. And there’s a lot of elf penis swinging around, too, which neither of us really needed to see. And there’s no women in the movie, so there’s no boobs.
All in all, I recommend. We both do. We really enjoyed this movie.
Our score: 74.
