Storyline

Visions of Suffering is alive with outrageous special effects and astonishing visuals that propel the viewer into a surreal world he/she may never escape from. Demons stalk a victim in his sleep. They appear whenever the rain falls and threaten to break free from the land of dreams into his conscious world. A drug-induced vision allows the demons to escape their hellish realm, and the victim is dragged into their nightmare domain. The latest film from director Andrey Iskanov ("Nails", "Philosophy of a Knife"), this Russian tale of horror takes you on a stunning visual journey into the abyss of nightmarish hallucination.

Surreal,nightmarish and disturbing head trauma.
1 April 2007 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Visions of Suffering" is a vast improvement over "Nails" in every way possible.The plot of this complex surreal piece is pretty hard to follow,but the film is loaded with scenes of hypnotic beauty which contrast with ugly and disturbing horror.I was torn apart from reality and found himself in the world full of nightmares,murders and drugs.The visual effects are very well done and extremely grotesque.The acting is natural and Alexander Shevchenko is outstanding as the tormented main character.I can't believe that such genuinely trippy film was made in Russia,where independent filmmakers are not respected.A hallucinogenic nightmare.9 out of 10.
