I do love horror films with an emphasis on strong visuals and an otherwordly feel, and Russian director Pavel Khvaleev looks to have delivered something really special with his nightmare horror III.
The first trailer has just been discovered, and it is full of some really strange, horrific stuff with creepy visuals that are guaranteed to get lodged in your memory. The film looks like an impressive cross between Nightwatch and The Cell, with some heavy religious undertones, and it looks gorgeous!
The film stars Polina Davydova, Lyubov Ignatushko, and Evgeniy Gagarin
During the outbreak of a mysterious deadly epidemic devastating a rural European village, sisters Ayia and Mirra promise their dying mother to look after each other to the end of their lives. When Mirra, the younger sister, falls victim to the epidemic, Ayia in desperation realizes that conventional medicine will not save her sister.
At the local priest’s house Ayia discovers a collection of Shamanic books containing a series of mystic drawings, which she deciphers as a ritual for spiritual healing that she believes will save her sister. The Shamanic cure involves a complete immersion into the patient’s mind, a journey into the deepest, most hidden depths of their subconscious where terrifying monsters and demons.
Will Ayia cope when she faces the obscure depths of her sister’s subconscious where terrifying monster may lay in waiting?
