10 Monster Movies to Haunt Christmas

24 Dec

Sint (2010)
Some movies take the tradition of a well-established figure and distorts the figure for the sake of terror. Is Sinterklaas a killer out for revenge or something more? The people he chases down are descendants of villagers who put away the original figure — a bishop by the name of Niklas who led a group of vagabonds who pillaged a village. They fought back and burned the ship; centuries later, a legend would see them return as ghosts ala John Carpenter’s The Fog to wreak vengeance upon the descendents. In the way this undead leader commands the pack, perhaps he’s more Lich-like than ghost.
