Saint Nick


1 Hour and 25 Minutes (85 Minutes)


 Assumption: The ' Sint ' tells the bloody story of Sinterklaas who like nightmarish deformation of Santa Claus rises from the grave every 5 December with full moon to kill small children. A stubborn COP with a young man trying to stop the blood-thirsty "Holy".

Original and crazy, "Sint" is one of those horror movies that did not go unnoticed. What authority does not pass unnoticed is the name of the author of the film, Dick Maas. Most old will remember him for the cult horror film "Lift" De 1983, known in the Greek market with picturesque and cheesy title "the elevator of terror". Said filmmaker well only rookie is not and has other notable films to his credit. This creates high expectations for the ' Sint ' even though we suspect the kitsario possibly hides like a movie.

The original and interesting story of ' Sint ' focuses on a distorted version of the folkloric figure of Sinterklaas or Sint Nicolaas (Saint Nicholas) whose anniversary is celebrated on 5 December in the Netherlands. In other words, we have yet another variant of the well-known us Santa Claus, but the film presents with dark profiles and rampant murderous disposition. This main well was once a compulsive Bishop who was killed by a bunch of chwriatwn in medieval times. Since then, every December 5, which is a full moon, the Sinterklaas returns as the demon in the world of the living and kills young children (not only naughty) and adults who will be on his way. Accompanied by his assistants daemonic also typically are black.

The 2010 well Amsterdam puts holiday to celebrate the anniversary of with Sinterklaas celebrations, gifts and costume balls. But a COP who believes in dark legend tries to convince his colleagues to prohibit any event with this figure. In vain. Nobody believes him and the feast begins. Along with the feast but starts and the bloody entrance of daimonikoy Bishop who riding on white horse and with the kind assistance of the zombies his assistants sows death indiscriminately killing adults and children. The COP with the help of a young man who was considered a suspect in the first lethal tries to exterminate the Sinterklaas once and for all. Will succeed?

The ' Sint ' moving between comedy and horror with scattered fantasy elements. The scale of course it tilted against the very terror that accompanied by enormous bloodshed. The killing is the main element that stands out in the film. Xekoiliasmata, beheadings, mutilations, eye mining and other such "beautiful" filled the shots and would splatter fans one. The fantasy, fairytale atmosphere emerges less like characters who generally have nothing special to say. Here is that essentially fails the ' Sint ' as none of the protagonists earns no interest while some of them are used poorly even though initially it seemed that the role would be more important (e.g. the young girl who helps out the COP).

Watching the ' Sint ' come fleetingly to mind various other films from the wider horror/fantasy repertoire. The fast gallops of daimonikoy Sinterklaass in combination with figoyratzidikes wheelies on his horse under the glare of the full moon is not done to remind your non-images from the "Headless Horseman" (2000). The Christmas atmosphere combined with the slasher conquering leads our thinking straight in the cult slasher "Silent Night, Deadly Night" of 1984. The pattern of regular refunds per many years in the world of the living with bloody mood brings to mind the "Jeepers Creepers" (2001) while the overall kitsch aesthetics and the dark distorted face of Sinterklaas is reminiscent of the kakomoytsoynoys evil characters from the cult trash "Uncle Sam" (1996) and "Maniac Cop" (1988) by William Lustig.

The final taste is sweet but not that we had hoped for. Because apart from the disadvantage of indifferent characters (with the exception of the imposing course Sinterklaas) also casually places of senariakoy trunk is plenty. Some not-so-neatly effects can also be added to the "Sint ' problems. But generally worth to give a chance to films after the fun is guaranteed. And combined with the fresh air passes can only be liking this honest effort.

Earnest effort from the Netherlands. The "Sint" could be even better if you use smarter data which was available to him.
