Oscilloscope Laboratories has unleashed the first domestic trailer for director Jalmari Helander's clever and scary Norwegian holiday thriller Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. The plot follows an archeological dig that unearths Santa Claus, and then tries to sell the dangerous being for profit. To check out this wily new trailer, click on the video below:
On the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, an archeological dig unearths Santa Claus. This particular Santa, however, isn't the one you want coming to town. When most of the town's children go missing, Pietari and his father, a local hunter named Rauno, come into possession of the mythological being. Rauno's clan of hunters attempt to cash in on the opportunity by selling Santa back to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. What ensues is nothing short of a wildly humorous nightmare - a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern day morality.
