|English release: Saint, directed by Dick Maas|
Despite a decades long--perhaps centuries long--cover-up by police and governmental officials, one man predicts the inevitable return of a murderous ghost who seeks to punish during the holidays. This horror film with a sense of humor sees the ghost of Saint Nicholas return only upon the night of December 5th when the moon is full. Then, the angry saint atop a horse and accompanied by his unearthly minions roams the streets looking for chimneys to descend to find bloody vengeance against the living.
|In 1968, young Goert is the sole survivor of a visit from St. Nick|
|Who doesn't love a good ghost story at Christmas?|

If you don't live in Cleveland, don't fret: this movie can also be seen on DVD. I just saw it on my local video rental store's shelf last night under the title Saint Nick. Thanks to Bob at Cleveland Movie Blog for suggesting this title.
What scares you at Christmas time? (besides the opportunity for Aunt Agnes to give you yet another ugly Christmas sweater).
