December 5th will never be the same!


We’re pleased to bring Holland’s box office hit of the year to the market! SAINT packed out cinemas all over Holland this Christmas. The high level of production and breathtaking action sequences make this a surprising horror film that is not to be missed. SAINT is pure entertainment.


SAINT is directed by Dick Maas (Amsterdamned, The lift), undoubtedly Holland’s most successful director, and co- produced with Tom de Mol, producer of box office hits such as Killer babes and Character (Oscar Academy Award Winning).

 

 

REVIEWS


"SINT slashes Dutch records." "SINT set a record for a Dutch movie rated 16 and older, dethroning Paul Verhoeven's Black Book." VARIETY


"A nicely nasty spin on the Saint Nicholas legend, offering up action, chills and more than a few moments of real terror." "The action is well staged plus there are some genuinely chilling moments." "Dick Maas is expert at producing tense entertainment - Amsterdamned and The Lift have both been local hits - and this film could be a smart genre pick-up for distributors in other territorios." SCREEN DAILY


"When it comes to holiday treats, what I want for Christmas is more films like SINT!" "The chimney sequence is filmed quick and contained enough elements that were original and horrifying to be one of the more memorable holiday horror sequences on celluloid." AIN'T IT COOL


"Special Effects and gore look impressive and unexpectedly grand even for Dick Maas, and one of the best setpieces involving a chase between a policecar on ground level and Niklas on the Amsterdam rooftops is stunning in execution." TWITCHFILM

SYNOPSIS
Saint Nicholas is not the good-hearted children's friend as people think he is. In reality he is a cruel bloodthirsty bishop who, whenever there's a full moon on December 5th, will try to slaughter as many children as possible.


St. Nicholas, a bishop fallen from grace, travels in the middle ages with his gang of robbers and thieves through the countryside, raping, plundering and killing. When villagers take the law into their own hands and murder the bloodthirsty bishop and his thugs by setting the ship on which they travel ablaze, Nicholas vows revenge.


Now every time there is a full moon on December 5, the date he died, something that on average takes place every 36 years, St. Nicholas and his helpers will rise from the dead and take revenge in a horrible way.
