Clipmakers meets horror and fails with scenarist
22 March 2006 | by cochaSee all my reviews

Experienced and retired journalist is going to write another story about serial killer, but he suddenly runs out of clinic and hides in suburb «dacha»'s - deserted holiday village. She follows him and becomes lost in this kind of ghetto. Hard trip begins and everything becomes surreal. It seems that director and scenarist had so much to say and seen so much before that decided to put in this movie everything they saw - no matter is it needful or not. Dull dialogs and chaotic, muddled direction, but really good idea, good operator work, Efremov as a serial killer is really great, good sound and good attempt in general.
