'Tis the season for … a nice slasher film.

'Tis the season for … a nice slasher film.

If you want a less-traditional Christmas flick, the Gateway Film Center is presenting "Saint," a Dutch horror-comedy featuring a less jolly ol' Saint Nick.

Based on the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas, it imagines a rogue bishop (my favorite kind!) named Niklas as a murderous baddie who likes to decapitate children. In this case, he's mostly terrorizing the favorite target of slasher flicks: Teenagers.

If "Saint" is anywhere close to as much fun as "Rare Exports" - the Finnish Christmas horror movie Gateway brought to town last Christmas - it should be a bloody blast.
