Is Santa the next Freddy or Jason? Looks that way.

It looks like someone finally cracked the combo of  Santa Claus and horror (sorry, Silent Night, Deadly Night). Building a crazy amount of buzz at the Toronto Film Festival is Jalmari Helander's horror tale from Finland, Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.

From what I can gather, Rare Exports tells the taleof a not-so-magically Christmas discovery: buried 486 metres deep under the Korvatunturi mountains is the real Santa Claus. A feral, bad ass one. Maybe more? 

No word yet on when the film gets a release, but we in The Basement are intrigued. Check out the trailer below for a look at this slick, potentially amusing production.
