Country: Russia
Language: Russian (English subtitles)
Runtime: 02:06:01
Genres: Bizarre-Surreal, Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Small Creatures, Violence against Women, Vampires, Drugs, Necrophilia

Plot – Spoilers:
Couple of guys are having some trouble with recurring nightmares that share a similar setting. One of them is on the verge of paranoia holed up in his apartment, while his girlfriend zones out in a fetish club. The other guy seems to be a priest having ideological differences with his faith. The priest also has fantasies/memories of the same club and other guy’s girlfriend.

Constructing a plot beyond this (if this was even correct) is left to the viewer’s imagination. Visions of Suffering like a lot of films in the genre is best experienced, rather than understood. From an effedup viewpoint, in addition to violence on the dance floor, there’s also a necro scene – though not sure if a vampire fucking a dead woman counts as necro.

Yay, many thanks for adding one of my requests admins:D A great fit for this site, imo, kinda surprised it wasn’t here already tbh. Iskanov’s other film, Nails, would be great too for down the road… Btw admins, thanks especially for having the foresight to have the Effedup watermark white this time instead of the usual yellow, which would’ve been an eyesore in a film like this w such drab colors;) I’ll start right out by saying if u like experimental films, then view this bc chances r you’ll enjoy it! For others tho, it might b hit or miss.… Read more »

Elliot, if you liked this one try checking out the directors cut made 10 yrs later in 2016. Imo its a lot better in a lot of ways although I dont know about its availability but worth hunting around for. Cheers.

Thanks Zed Man, ya I’ve been wanting to check it out but I missed the run of em when Unearthed was selling em, been waiting to score a cheap copy online. They’re actually releasing The Untold Story on Blu Ray soon, which was always a favorite of mine as a kid, im definitely not missing the opportunity to snag that one!
