Russia's THE SCYTHIAN Looks Savage [Trailer]

By Christopher Webster [04.12.18]


Rustam Mosafir's historical/horror/fantasy epic The Scythian will be hitting Brazil's Fantaspoa, the largest film festival in Latin America which turned me onto the trailer and, wow, this movie looks completely savage.

I'm a huge fan Russian epics. They tend to plod, but they are gorgeous and brutal. See Wolfhound or The Inhabited Island (aka Dark Planet)


Synopsis:
These are times when one civilization is replacing another. A new era is about to begin in Central Eurasia. Scythians, the proud warriors, are all but gone. The few of their descendants have become ruthless mercenary assassins, the "waves of Ares."

Lutobor, is a soldier with a difficult task at hand. He becomes involved in internecine conflicts and sets off on a perilous journey to save his family. His guide is a captive Scythian by the name of Weasel. Lutobor and Weasel are enemies. They pray to different gods but must embark on this journey together. They brave the wild steppes, moving toward the last haven of the Scythians, to what seems to be their inevitable demise.



I'll definitely be keeping my eyes on this one as it tours more fests.




Recommended Release: Wolfhound
