WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A priest (Gallo) leads a group on a rescue mission into the caverns below the capital of Russia, only to discover that the entrance to the Underworld has been opened.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
In Moscow Zero, Vincent Gallo plays an American priest (!) named Owen who, while searching for missing archeologist friend Sergei (Rade Serbedzija), discovers the gates of Hell have been opened.

How? It’s explained I think, but I don’t quite remember; but I’m not sure it’s necessary, even when writing a review. Point is, the gates of Hell—located somewhere in unusually well-lit caverns below Moscow—have been opened, allowing shadow-people to spook freely.

Though this is not the horror movie that box suggests, the “rescue team,” made up of five or six, are as dimensional and sympathetic as the characters in any slasher. Their objective, it seems, is not so much focused on rescuing Sergei, but to recite journal entries and talk aloud to themselves a lot, using words like “demon” and “outcast” as insults to the undead. Among these undead is Andrey (Val Kilmer), likely the Devil himself—and he’s Russian, just like LBJ said!

That’s about all—without forcing it—that could be written about María Lidón’s Moscow Zero. But I’ll leave you with two more facts: 1) its limited run included countries like Azerbaijan and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and 2) yes, that’s Sage Stallone as one of Kilmer’s minions.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Fans will want to rent this because of Val Kilmer. But before you do, remember this: you'll be stuck underneath of Russia with Vincent Gallo as a priest for 82 minutes.
