Evil Santa flick “Saint” sells at Tribeca
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Tribeca Film Festival is only a few days old, but the sales already have begun.
One of the first transactions being reported from the Manhattan film festival is IFC Midnight’s acquisition of director Dick Maas’ evil Santa film “Saint” in a deal that was made prior to the movie’s North American premiere in the festival’s Cinemania section.
From the release:
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 (Weeber) as he sets out on a bloody, high-energy battle to save Amsterdam from the wrathful “Sinterklaas” and his minions.
“Dick Maas has created a high-octane, extraordinarily chilling film that is truly unlike anything we’ve seen before. It’s sure to make a huge splash with audiences at the Tribeca Film Festival,” said Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
