Did You Know?

In hindsight, the complaints by Johan Nijenhuis about the movie being inappropriate for young children seems to have been part of a publicity campaign.

Continuity: 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, the dented car we see in the next shot is an older model Golf IV. As a matter of fact, the license plate numbers are different. The newer Golf has a license plate released somewhere in 2004 and the Golf IV has a 2001 plate.

User Review

Great action packed movie

Rating: 8/10

I went to see this yesterday with high expectations. After all, the movie was hyped a lot here. Fortunately most of my expectations were fulfilled.

The story: The story is straight forward and sometimes a bit predictable. The fun part is of course that Dick Maas has turned Sinterklaas from the child loving person he normally is, into a blood-lust zombie. So every 30 to 40 years, when the 5th of December is with full moon, blood thirsty Nickolas and his party of zombies, come to spoil the party. Only, this time, there's someone waiting to stop him.

The good: This is movie is all you can ask for in a horror comedy. The mix between scary moments and laughs is just right.

The bad: Well, some of the actors (especially the non-main characters) could use some acting lessons. Fortunately most of them don't last long enough to be bothered by it too much..... Also some of the explanations for the evil behaviour of Sinterklaas are very thin. Dick Maas should have come up with something better there.

The conclusion: All in all, it's good fun to watch. Some minor bits should be taken care of in the case of a sequel (can't wait), but those can easily be overlooked. That's why my final verdict is 8 out of ten.
