Oh my good this is great movie, about suicide maniac communist (Jorma Tommila) who wants to get back in the old times (USSR). He is just going to hang himself when Vampire comes there in the right time. (SORRY ABOUT MY LANGUAGE, I AM FROM FINLAND ). They decide to go together in the promised land USSR. Movie contines (?) lots of great jokes and funny stuff. Jorma Tommila is great in role of old maniac communist. GRAZY MOVIE......
