Rare Exports Inc. (Jalmari Helander, 2003) and Rare Exports: The Official Safety Instructions (Jalmari Helander, 2005)

Christmas is nearly upon us and MMC! wanted to wish everyone a happy holidays with this pair of short films by Jalmari Helander.  These wonderful shorts take the “Murder Santa” trope into weird, fantastical places.  For those looking for more, we recommend Helander’s 2010 feature elaboration, Rare Exports.

Merry merry, happy happy, everyone!

    These shorts were released on DVD in Finland. Now it is sold out and a great rarity, as far as I know. The humour in these short movies is wonderfully weird!

      They’re on the Region 1/A North American edition of the feature. I think it’s still in print and is total gold.
