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!

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

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.

Every year i like to get a horror movie about Christmas and this movie i picked up with Rare Exports:A Christmas Tale and this movie. I enjoyed this movie alot. I don't want to ruin it for people but the story i thought was original. A serial killer psychopath who was killed under a full moon on hos birthday. Now he comes back every 32 years or something. I thought the scenery was beautiful and i think the acting was well done. The santa character really looks nasty which i like and it is just a gory vile fun christmas horror movie. They dubbed it in english so if you don't want to read the film then watch it dubbed. Great film i highly recommend it to anybody who wants a cool horror film or holiday film. You wont be disappointed.

In the Netherlands, children put their shoes (containing hay and carrots) by the chimney and sing Sinterklass songs, and those who have been good receive gifts from Saint Nicholas and his helpers (called Black Petes). According to the myth, bad children, however, are put in sacks and carried by Saint Nicholas to Spain, where he supposedly comes from. This is not to be confused with Christmas, for the celebration of St. Nicholas Day takes place on the 5th and 6th of December. In this movie, though, we are told that there is much more to the story, that Saint Nicholas was not a 4th century bishop known for gift-giving and healing. In actuality, he was a 15th-century apostate bishop who, along with his army of Black Petes, pillaged, murdered, kidnapped, and pretty much terrorized the countryside until a group of villagers fought back and burned Nicholas and his ship. The truth was covered up by the Catholic Church, so now no one believes the urban legend that Saint Nicholas returns every December 5 night with a full moon to exact revenge on the people of Amsterdam.

One man, though, knows the legend to be true. Goert Hoekstra (Bert Luppes) witnessed the murder of his parents and siblings back in 1968 and decided to become a policeman in order to protect the citizens of Amsterdam the next time a full moon fell on Saint Nicholas Day. Of course, all of his police colleagues think he’s daft, forcing him to try and stop Saint Nicholas on his own. A teenaged boy named Frank also becomes involved, after he witnesses the handiwork of Saint Nick and his Black Petes firsthand, only to be wrongly accused of murdering two of his friends.

The film’s special effects are quite good. It’s hard to forget the sight of Saint Nick riding his white steed across the rooftops as police pursue him, and the sight of Saint Nick’s burned face is guaranteed not to inspire any visions of sugar plums in anybody’s dreams. A number of the killings are pretty gory and often involve the shearing off of body parts. The pacing of the film is also quite good; indeed, the film seems to zoom along much faster than its 90-minute duration. Simply put, this is one of the best Christmas-related horror movies I’ve seen in recent years – despite its less than stellar English dubbing. Just be aware that’s it is known by a variety of names, including Saint Nick, Saint, and Sint. American viewers may not understand the significance of the date or the peculiar Dutch customs around Saint Nicholas, but the glorious horror unleashed by this dude are truly universal.

I can honestly say that this story held my attention the entire time, well there was a brief moment when dear ole Nick was m.i.a in the film and it was more of a “find the bomber” type situation but very minimal amount of time. Soon the carnage began again. Oh and this slayer is very non discriminant in who he kills = Adults, teens and yes there is the splatter and screams of little children. “Sint” offers a very equal opportunity slayerific experience.

The story was common as any other holiday horror. Promiscuous youths, urban legend and set ups familiar to any horror film. This film however is in the middle of a very active and modern city of the world and has moments were it is more like a “Mission Impossible” film than a slaughter film. Very reminiscent of when Jason took Manhattan. Some go almost unnoticed by the evil saint while others seem to be dead in his sites at all cost.

This is a really good holiday film that offers more to any horror fans Christmas tradition. So if a Saint Nicholas eating and killing children and terrorizing town folk is right up your Evil Santa and Krampus parade filled affair then check this film out. However be warned your options are this – subtitled or dubbed in English. I chose the dubbed but think I would have experienced it more intensely in subtitle form.

I happen to celebrate Saint Nicholas' Day every 6th of December. Trust me; this is NOT the Saint Nicholas anyone would want to celebrate! This is Sinterklaas and he has an ax to grind (so to speak) with the not so good people of Amsterdam. In the melee that follows, people lose their heads while trying not to stay calm and a lot of children go missing. Best scene, Sinterklaas on horseback galloping along the rooftops, the police in hot pursuit. I can't think of a better way to deck the halls than with this little masterpiece. I plan to watch it every Christmas. If you like slasher flicks AND holiday films, this is for you. All others need to beware. No one ho-ho-ho's in this film.
