Both warm and chilly on top, Helander's well-mounted black comedy puts a devilish spin on movie Santas. -Kevin Harley, Total Film
A wonderfully strange concoction of dry comedy, weird horror, and Christmas-related craziness. -Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
...Rare Exports is executed with such audacious style and with such a big vision that it's impossible to watch without a big grin spreading across your face. -Todd Brown, Twitch Film
Better watch out. This holiday season, we’re bringing back the film the Village Voice called “the best anti-Christmas Christmas movie since BAD SANTA”. RARE EXPORTS: A CHRISTMAS TALE is the Fantastic Fest 2010 favorite about a mysterious archaeological dig that uncovers a rather sinister jolly fat man clad in red. Soon, lines are drawn as a group of reindeer hunters capture Santa and lash him in irons like Hannibal Lecter and the archaeologists prove to be more than they seem. No doubt about it, RARE EXPORTS is the best movie about Santa-hunting ever made.
