When Sophie is flipping through the TV channels, she stops at an Sinterklaas-themed episode of the series Flodder (1993), which was based on a movie of the same name. Dick Maas created the movie, its two sequels and the series that was derived from it. Johnny Flodder was played in the first two movies by Huub Stapel, the same actor who plays Niklas in 'Sint'. Johnny Flodder in the series footage, however, is the late Coen van Vrijberghe de Coningh. See more »
This one has been submitted yet but there is an error in it; The police car that's being used in the rooftop-chase scene is a Volkswagen Golf V. But when the horse falls off the roof and onto the car it momentarily is a Golf III, the dented car we see in the next shot is an model Golf IV. As a matter of fact, the license plate numbers however are the same on all cars. See more »
Very entertaining horror comedy but please don't take it seriously
It seems to me that most of the reviewers have missed the point. That there was none. This movie is simply out to entertain. It is not one of those kinds that depend on a chilling story or strong characters.(Although there were some sequences that were quite thrilling). It simply is a slasher movie based on a classic myth and still grand celebration in the Netherlands of the original St. Nicolas.Sinterklaas (OG Santa if you will).It is supposed to be over the top.Bad acting,bad dialog,not very likable characters,and lots of lots of (CGI) blood and gore. To expect more will surely lead to disappointment.Everybody familiar with Dick Maas previous work could have expected this. Since it is far from a stretch even when this production is more leaning towards a comedy.And his comedies weren't exactly of the subtle and clever kind. Maybe not completely on par with Dead Snow and Rare exports (which can be debated) it sure does provide the same amount of entertainment.
