Why Don’t You Just Die! Watch the trailer for new Russian thriller


Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend’s parents’ apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey’s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don’t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable — not to mention ruthless — opponent than he anticipated… and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour.

Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, WHY DON’T YOU JUST DIE! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema’s brightest rising stars.

This is getting compared to early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi, so looks like it may well be worth checking out.

Directed by Kirill Sokolov, the film stars Aleksandr Kuznetsov and Vitaliy Khaev.

Why Don’t You Just Die! will be released in UK & US cinemas from April 10th and on Blu-ray & Digital HD from April 20th.
