Oh, the things we’ll do for love. People are willing to make some extreme changes in their lives to be with someone who has won their heart. They will even go on great adventures that would seem totally out of place to them at any earlier time in their lives. In the 2020 horror comedy from director Danil Grinkin scary bride, the American main character does not have a special person in his life, but he is so desperate for love that he heads to Russia in the hope of finding the love of his life there. You could also describe what he’s doing as going to Russia hoping to pick up some random Russian girl, but we’ll take the more romantic view in this case.
Sometimes things go terribly wrong when people make big moves for love, and such is the case with scary bride. That is why the movie has that title and is categorized as a horror comedy. The random Russian girl our hero crosses paths with in this movie is not someone he would have liked to meet, in Russia, in the United States, or in any other country. This poor man had to pay for plane tickets and endure international travel only to fall into a living nightmare.
Danil Grinkin, also known as Dan Grin, directed scary bride from a screenplay by early writer Anatol Ardin. Ardin also wrote the synopsis that’s available on the film’s IMDb page, which tells you exactly what to expect from the movie up until the moment the horror begins:
A young American employee, Anthony, recently divorced, led a reclusive lifestyle. His old friend Matt didn’t answer his calls for several days and it seemed like he left somewhere without letting any of his friends know. One day, sounds were heard from Matt’s apartment and Anthony went to see what was going on there. Suddenly, he bumped into an unknown beautiful girl and was shocked and hit his head. As it turned out, the girl was Natasha, Matt’s girlfriend. Matt heard the sound and ran inside. He and Natasha took Anthony to his apartment. The next day, Matt and Natasha told Anthony that they had just returned from Russia and advised him to go there where he could find a beautiful bride. Natasha assured Anthony that Russia is a very safe place with a lot of fun things going on. After some hesitation, Anthony left for Russia. After settling in the hotel and resting, in the evening he went to the bar, where he met a beautiful lonely blonde dancer named Nina. One of the visitors to the bar warns Anthony that Nina was a witch and she could not be kissed. Anthony didn’t take it seriously. The couple had fun at the restaurant, and Nina invited Anthony over to her house. Well drunk, Anthony agreed.
The film stars Vitt Ray, Evgeniya Yarushnikova, Andrew Craig, Arnella Zubkova, Diana Belova, Roman Danilychev, Svetlana Egorova, and Fluora Iskhakova.
Grin previously directed the documentary. Intact, about the friendship that formed between pairs of competitive skaters from Russia and the United States. One of the skaters was Natalia Zabiiako, to whom he was also married for a while.
scary bride it was a Russian production that was presented in English, which probably explains why the sound is a bit strange and they have all been dubbed. This is not a movie likely to join the likes of Evil Dead II, Shaun of the DeadY An American werewolf in London on lists of the best horror comedies, but you might just have a good time.
