– (2010) – The dark fairy tale version of Santa Claus is dug out of ice in Finland, to the dismay of local children. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, and most of what happens is preposterous, but many occurrences are certainly unique. Manages genuine creepiness from time to time.
– (2007) – A couple films each other as they obliterate a family at Christmastime, among other “festive” moments. Yet another falsified experience that’s supposed to outrage, but the well has run dry on the trickery. What’s supposed to seem real and profound is now irritating and lacking of conviction.
– (2003) – Forty-two teens are abducted to infiltrate a group of terrorists run by the original film’s survivor. Has much to say about the need for youths to rebel against adults, but the message is often lost in the bloat of the action and the overlong running time. Always worth regarding, but too often hard to value.
