UK PREMIERE - A roaring rampage of stylish revenge with a fabulously comic tone and superb Ennio Morricone pastiche score, here’s a stunning slice of bloodthirsty Russian crime and punishment in the high tone Tarantino manner. Corrupt detective Andrei brings together a terrible group of people in his apartment: his resentful actress daughter, an angry thug, his timid wife, and a cheated cop. Each one of them has a reason to kill him but will they succeed? A splatter punk action comedy drenched in gore marking an exciting feature film debut from director Kirill Sokolov and making his carnival of carnage a total delight.
