Visually haunting official trailer for Pavel Khvaleev's III


Creeping out of the depths this morning was a little film by the name of III, from Russian director Pavel Khvaleev, and it looks like a stunner, one that you should definitely check out. The trailer is surreal, offering a brief glance at the film's haunting atmosphere as we see Ayia in a subconscious battle to save her sister. Monsters and demons lurk within the walls of this narrative and I can't wait to get my hands on it. If anything, III is going to look incredible, which is at least half the battle; hopefully the story is up to par as well.

The synopsis:

During the outbreak of a mysterious deadly epidemic devastating a rural European village, sisters Ayia and Mirra promise their dying mother to look after each other to the end of their lives. When Mirra, the younger sister, falls victim to the epidemic, Ayia in desperation realizes that conventional medicine will not save her sister.

At the local priest’s house Ayia discovers a collection of Shamanic books containing a series of mystic drawings, which she deciphers as a ritual for spiritual healing that she believes will save her sister. The Shamanic cure involves a complete immersion into the patient’s mind, a journey into the deepest, most hidden depths of their subconscious where terrifying monsters and demons. Will Ayia cope when she faces the obscure depths of her sister’s subconscious where terrifying monster may lay in waiting?

III stars Polina Davydova, Lyubov Ignatushko, and Evgeniy Gagarin. Hopefully we’ll have word of a release date soon, this one looks killer.
