Editorial Reviews

An original and delightfully gruesome slasher film, Saint reimagines jolly old Saint Nick as a bloodthirsty bishop fulfilling a grisly prophecy every 32 years under the Christmas full moon. The film's titular saint was in fact a murderous medieval marauder, ultimately slain by the villagers he tormented, only to swear a ghostly revenge on their descendents every December 5 the anniversary of his death. Centuries later, the story has settled comfortably into innocuous folklore, until a bloody encounter with the ghoul himself forces local teen Frank to believe in Santa all over again. Teaming up with a fellow believer, discharged conspiracy-theorist cop Goert, it will be up to Frank to save the city of Amsterdam in an all-out bloody battle against the wrathful "Sinterklaas" and his minions. Dick Maas, the director of classic Dutch horror films The Lift and Amsterdamned, delivers a fun chiller full of creative yuletide horror played out across the decked halls (and roofs) of snowy Amsterdam justly earning Saint's spectacle of thrills, chills, and kills the title of highest grossing Dutch film of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars best christmas horror movie in a long time January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
I just purchased this from Amazon. Too bad it arrived right after Christmas cuz I was wanting to view it before then. When I did get to see it with a friend, we were both pleasently surprised to how good it was. It wasn't the greatest film, but so much better than all the other Christmas type horror films that were released, with the exception of Silent Night, Deadly Night 1-5 (I liked those). If you want a decent entertaining holiday horror to watch, then this is the one for you. None of the other Christmas ones were any good, especially Slaughter Claus (STAY FAR AWAY FROM SLAUGHTER CLAUS!!!!!). SLAUGHTER CLAUS ON DVD IS AWFUL! I SOLD IT RIGHT AFTER VIEWING IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Ol' St. Nick! June 8, 2012
Here in the "States" we have Jason Vorhees, Michael Meyers, and Freddy Kruger as our "never-can-be-killed" maniacs. Now it's time for you to be introduced to Amsterdam's main nemisis: Saint Nick.

This movie is so enjoyable because it doesn't take itself seriously. The story is based on the legend of Saint Nick and his evil men robbing, pillaging, and murdering since 1492. I thought that date was intruiging because that is also the date Columbus set sail for America, but I digress. Anyway, after Saint Nick and his "Black Petes" have caused quite an uproar in the village, they head back for their ship. However, the townspeople are one step ahead of them, sitting fire to the ship and supposedly killing all that's aboard. Flash-forward 476 years (nudge, nudge; wink, wink), and the boys are back in town killing all but one in a family, who witnesses the slaughter, and goes on to become a detective with a vow to make sure this never happens again. This is where it got a little confusing: St. Nick was supposed to come back on the full moon of December 5 every 32 years. Well, one "date changer" on films states "40 years later," and you can see about St. Nick's visits after the first time he ran amok! That took 476 years. Make up your minds already!

That aside, I still enjoyed this. It tried (and fairly succeeded) to be original, the gore wasn't over the top--but it's THERE--and there was just enough comic relief to make this a rather enjoyable pony ride! Unrated for gore and language, I will recommend it. Oh, but, if you want to enjoy the movie more, watch it with subtitles. The "dubbed" version is awful! I'm looking forward to Part 2 because, well, there just HAS to be a part 2!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Christmas Slasher October 30, 2011
I watched this on Fios on demand and it was a fun, entertaining Holiday Slasher/comedy..
It is in dutch so I'm sure you will have the option of subtitles or the dubbed version,I always recommend the original sound with Subtitles.
It starts off with the legend of Saint Nickolaus and how he and what 'they call' black Pete's whom are a few of his men are pillaging a village by going on a murderous spree and stealing children that were supposed to be bad in like 1683 AD..The townsfolk have had enough so they sneak up on Saint Nick's camp on the banks of the water and slaughter he and all the Black Pete's then burn them in their schooner. Then it flashes to 1968 and almost an entire family is slaughtered by the disfigured ghost/demon of Saint Nickolaus,but one boy survives and then they cut to the present time and the boy is all grown up and ready to make sure saint Nick and his Black Pete's don't do any more damage.Supposedly Saint Nick can only kill and steal bad children on the full moon every like 40 years or so "very Jeepers creepers".
It just so happens that it is a full moon and has been 40 years so he and his men appear again decapitating, killing and slashing through the snow.
It was a great movie with great gore effects and many of them at that ,addsome great humor thrown in and some genuinely scary moments.I think it's a great Holiday Horror film and one that any slasher lover will want to watch and even own.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 Of the best Foreign movies available December 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
Living in Oklahoma, and being from Belgium myself,
I'm quite familiar with Dutch Cinema.
This movie is beautifully shot great camerawork, with both English or Dutch spoken and sub titling.
My husband & I enjoyed it very much, and the plot of the movie thickens as it goes on.
As we say in Dutch
Fantastische film met goede regie
