What would happen if you were locked between four walls and tortured without explanation? This happens to the protagonist, who is kidnapped to be subjected to the cruelest tests in Pavel Khvaleev's Sleepless Beauty, a film that's said to feature hints of the Saw saga and Pascal Laugier's French masterpiece Martyrs.
Today sees the release of the film's official trailer and two bizarre posters, all of which can be viewed below!
In the film, "A young girl named Mila is kidnapped. The unknown abductors keep her in an old garage, talk to her through a loudspeaker and set strict rules: she must not sleep but has to fulfill weird tasks that they’ve prepared for her. It all looks like someone’s sick ideas and gloomy entertainment. Still, the girl doesn’t suspect that she’s part of a ruthless experiment."
The film stars Polina Davydova, Evgeniy Gagarin, Sergey Topkov, and Andrey Tereshenko.
Khvaleev directs Sleepless Beauty from a screenplay penned by Aleksandra Khvaleeva, Evgeniy Gagarin, and Elena Gagarina.
Black Mandala Productions will release the film sometime in 2020.
