  • Whether all these [genre] elements stack up into a compelling, or even interesting, whole is questionable, but they make for a strange chimney-top view of contemporary Holland, caught somewhere between myth and reality.

  • "Sint" might seem no different than a "Friday the 13th" part six, seven or eight. Nevertheless there is enough madcap enthusiasm, satire and artistry put into it to still make it a very fun movie.

  • Saint has been infused with a plodding, hopelessly humorless sensibility that inevitably drains the viewer's interest and cements the movie's place as a missed opportunity of nigh epic proportions.

  • There are only so many times a person can watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer before going mad, but after a while, pointless gore isn't much fun either.

  • ...midnight movie fans have their ways of repurposing movies for their enjoyment. And I wouldn't want to get in the way of that.

Audience Reviews for Saint

    Saint is a new approach to an old formula: Slasher-Horror set around the events of a specific holiday (in this case, Christmas). It's neither the best, nor the worst of the Yuletide bloodbaths, but the only important question is, is it good in and of itself? And the answer is a solid "No". Saint has no scares, laughs or ponders on offer, and though it isn't the very bottom of the barrel, it's not something I could recommend either.

    You know what I really hate, and this is something completely unrelated to the film but it very heavily affects my opinion of it, when I'm forced to watch a foreign movie with very shitty English dubbing instead of the original language. I get why some of these films are dubbed, some people are very turned off by the act of having to read subtitles. So I get that you want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, but for those of us who don't really mind, PLEASE give us the language the film was meant to be seen in. A really bad english dub can really affect what you think of the movie, and I absolutely hated it in this movie. It was just really bad, it felt forced, contrived and completely unnatural. That's not to say that I would've liked the film more if I had seen it in German, I'd have hated it a little bit less, but the dubbing makes a bad movie worse. It's hard to gauge a film's potential to be good when all you're listening to is poorly acted, it really is. The idea is cool enough, I suppose, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The movie does a very poor job at making Saint Niklas into this fearsome and terrifying monster. Use as much gore as you want, it's certainly is a distraction from the film's poor quality, but that does not make an effective villain. And for an 84 minute horror movie, this film is really slow. I don't know, but there's just some scenes that really feel like they were there to pad the running time because they didn't have enough material to make a full movie. The deaths are forgettable and pretty lame at that, the film looks low-budget. I don't typically have a problem with that if the cast is up to snuff, or if the script is clever with some good ideas, but this film has none of that. It's real easy to forgive technical limitations if you have other aspects that make up for it, it's really easy. Look at Extracted, Deadheads, or A Little bit Zombie. Those films looked pretty piss-poor, but they more than made up for it with clever ideas, a great cast and just an effort to try to make the best of what you got, and while they may have been flawed movies, they were entertaining in spite of the issues. Like the underdog you root for, even if you know he's not the best athlete or whatever. I realize it's not fair to compare those movies to this one, but this one really got to me. It just seems like no effort was put into this film, at all. It feels like it was just thrown together to provide an alternative to the typical cheesy Christmas movies you see and to make a quick buck from the very loyal horror audience. And another thing, this film could've used some more humor. Things are taken WAY too seriously in the film. I suspect that the intention was that taking it so serious would add some unintentional comedy to the proceedings, but it didn't work. The film has a fucking killer Santa Claus. I mean, imagine all the shitty jokes you can do with that. Yes, the joke would've been shitty but it would've been charming in a B-movie way, where you laugh at the painfully bad jokes. I don't know, I really hated this movie. I don't even care about seeing the German version anymore, this movie really sucks.

    The story is superficial but the fast pace, gore and the easiness of the movies is compensating this flaw. The special effects might not be amazing, however, considering the small budget the effects we're pretty nice. "Sint" is a good St. Nicholas horror movie from Netherlands which delivers lots of fun and gore.
