A sick sequel to a very sick short holiday film.
21 March 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A few years before "The Official Rare Exports Inc. Safety Instructions" debuted, Jalmari Helander made a film called "Rare Exports Inc.". This original film wasn't really intended as anything more than a cute film to be shown to a small group of folks, but fortunately it got out and was a huge hit on the internet. Now, in this second film we have a sequel. And, if you like the sequel, then I have good news for you--in 2010 the two films led to a full-length horror movie which is sick, twisted and a lot of fun.

Before watching this film, I do recommend you see the first short before this sequel. It would make the viewing experience much more enjoyable.

This films is like an industrial training film. It gives lots of warnings about how to deal with a wild Father Christmas. It's all very sick....but also incredibly well made. It has a wonderful cinematic quality that makes you marvel. Great music, great special effects and a strange, sick sense of humor make this well worth your time. BUT, I also should point out these are NOT films for kids or those easily offended. In fact, it helps if you are the sort who likes to be offended!! Not as good as the first film and MUCH darker--but also worth seeing.
