It’s a really good to see something so strong come out of Russia. All the Russian movies I’ve seen, I’ve enjoyed, but I must admit, I ain’t seen an awful lot of them. This film has some of the strongest reviews I’ve read last year for any film and won top prize at last years Abu Dabi film festival. This is Russia’s Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film. We should be seeing it made available real soon.

OFFICIAL PLOT (imdb)

In a Russian coastal town, Dmitri is forced to fight the corrupt mayor when he is told that his house will be demolished. He recruits a lawyer friend to help, but the man’s arrival brings further misfortune for Dmitri and his family.

2: WHAT WE BECOME

New viral outbreak movie from Denmark directed by Bo Mikkelsen. The film focuses on a family in a quarantined town that has had some sort of super-flu outbreak and must fight against everything and anything in order to survive, and hopefully not pick up the flu-like virus.

Looks more like Outbreak than 28 Days Later, although there seems to be some sort of mayhem and murder thrown in for good measure… and that’s always a nice touch ๐Ÿ˜‰

OFFICIAL PLOT

The Johansson family’s idyllic summer is brought to an abrupt halt as deaths stack up from a virulent strand of the flu. The authorities start off by cordoning-off the neighbourhood, but soon panic and force the inhabitants into quarantine in their hermetically-sealed houses. Isolated from the rest of the world, teen Gustav spies out and realises that the situation is getting out of control. He breaks out, but soon the family of four comes under attack from the riotous, blood-thirsty mob who forces them to the extreme to escape alive.

New film from director of classic Australian revenge flick The Horseman . With The Horseman the director had a single father who worked as a pest controller take some justifiable revenge on a small seedy porn industry that drugged and forced his daughter to take part in their movies. His daughter then dies and the father sets out to take-down every single one of them … Using some pretty awesome and Imaginative weaponry!

Now the director takes an usual turn and heads to Albania for his next feature. The film will be a horror/thriller and will feature an entire Albanian cast and will focus on some sort of real-life family feuds.

Nothing more is available at this time but we should be a trailer very soon.
The Horseman is one of my favourite revenge movies of all time, this is a film that should be high up on everyone’s watch-list.

Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ˜‰
