An exhilarating horror/suspense film that gleefully ricochets from laughter to terror. Shot and set in Moscow this independant production is the story of three unsuspecting americans who find themselves in a dangerous situation out of their control. One of them, Billy, is a mute make up special effects artist working on a low-budget slasher film who, locked in the broken-down film studio late at night, thinks she witnesses the making of a snuff film. Thus begins a night of ter­ror when her friends, who try to help her, get trapped in a complex web of lies and life-threatening situations involving the KGB, the Moscow police and an organized crime kingpin known as “The Reaper”.
