Naughty or nice

. May 18, 2012.

Perhaps you think films about Santa Claus have been exhausted; that there’s really nothing fresh that can be done with old Saint Nick in the theater. And maybe Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale — which screens at the Michigan Theater on December 9 and 10 — will change your mind. When a scientist in Finland discovers that the Korvatunturi Mountain acts as a burial mound, he has it dug up — then things get weird. Reindeer are killed. Bratty children go missing. Supplies disappear. One family catches the culprit, which ends up being a sadistic, pissed-off Santa Claus, and decides the thing to do is keep Old Nick in a cage and sell him to a scientist. The thing is, the film is serious — or as serious as you can be when going this route. Hey, it did get good reviews. 10pm. $9. $7 students. 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
