Saint, a new action thriller from director Dick Maas, is set to make its North America premier tonight as part of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival line-up. The film was just acquired by IFC Midnight for theatrical distribution in the states, and will be hitting select screens throughout the country later this year.
An original and delightfully gruesome slasher film, Saint re-imagines jolly old Saint Nick as a murderous bishop fulfilling a grisly prophecy under the December full moon. Packed with creative yuletide horror, Saint is a fun chiller that follows local teen Frank (Egbert Jan Weeber) as he sets out on a bloody, high-energy battle to save Amsterdam from the wrathful "Sinterklaas" and his minions.
