Critic Reviews for Saint
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.
Has a cockeyed charm, some truly clever ideas, and more than enough energy to pull it all off. And it's really gory.
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.
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.
Fun Dutch take on the Christmas Slasher subgenre. This time, though, instead of a killer Santa, it's a killer Saint Nicholas and the action takes place on St. Nicholas' Day (Dec 5). If you like your Christmas films dark, gory, and sickly funny, this cross-cultural treat is for you.
