10 Christmas Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die
We all know Father Christmas as a jolly, rotund fellow with a penchant for mince pies and making children smile, but after watching Dutch director Dick Maas Sint you wont be happily singing "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" any time soon. Turning the local legend of Sinterklaas (the Dutch version of Santa) on its head, the film transforms him into a bloodthirsty bishop killed in the 15th century by an angry mob after pillaging and murdering his way through Europe. Evil doesnt die so easily though and now every 32 years when a moon falls on 5th December, the anniversary of his death, his vengeful spirit returns to wreak bloody havoc on Amsterdam. Beyond its dark humour and local folklore, Sints visuals picture Saint Nick bounding across the rooftops of Amsterdam astride his trusty steed of doom (no cute, carrot-chomping reindeers here) are impressively stunning.
