Well, judging by the first more than enthusiastic reviews, Andrey and Kim succeeded, so sorry, Another World , but November 24 vampires and lycans will have to move.|
In the center of the plot is "28 Panfilov's men" - the feat of Soviet soldiers who defended the approaches to Moscow in November 1941. As you know, the Great Patriotic War went down in history not only thanks to loud victories and defeats, but also such local battles, the reality of which is sometimes simply impossible to believe. One of them was the confrontation between a small detachment of soldiers, who single-handedly stopped a German tank offensive just a couple of hours away from Moscow.
Critics were impressed not only by the scale of the battle scenes and the realism of the battles, but also by the patriotic monologues and dialogues of the main characters devoid of strained pathos. The acting, atmospheric musical accompaniment, focus on true, not crazy heroism and gloomy male humor were also awarded all sorts of praises.

ANOTHER WORLD: WAR OF BLOOD
But back to our lycans. Another novelty of the coming week, the action-horror Underworld: Blood Wars is another part of the franchise, which started in 2003 and tells the story of a girl named Selina waging a war against scary creatures. In the fifth tape of the film series, the heroine Kate Beckinsale will have to put an end to the eternal confrontation between the two clans and take revenge on the vampires who betrayed her. However, if the tape brings good profit to its creators, this very end may turn out to be rather arbitrary.
TRAIN TO BUSAN
In the meantime, in the adjacent cinema hall, another, much more original, albeit less publicized action-horror will be waiting for you - the South Korean Train to Busan . In the story, a girl infected with a mysterious virus infects passengers of a high-speed train heading from Seoul to Busan - the only city that was able to withstand the infection. The main characters, little Su-an and her father, will have to desperately fight for their lives in a confined space full of maddened zombies. In the film community, this picture has already made a splash: critics are vying with each other to praise its unique take on the zombie horror format and compare it with the best films of George A. Romero, as well as with the film "28 Days Later" , which has become a real milestone in this genre.
"ABATUAR. LABYRINTH OF FEAR "
“Ten years before I became the owner of this house, a terrible massacre took place here”- already from this quote we can assume that we will be shown at the horror session Abatuar. Labyrinth of Fear " . However, the director's name inspires a certain degree of confidence: Darren Lynn Bousman has directed the Saw franchises and other successful and at the same time very unusual horror films, so that even from the most simple plot, he can make candy due to unconventional techniques and high-quality drama. "Abatuar" tells the story of a mysterious villain who creates a multi-level hell on earth from parts of houses in which bloody murders took place at different times. This idea of a material labyrinth of fear, which is the focus of negative energy, could well be a good franchise claim.

Everything is beautiful here, even suffering, but there is no plot as such. Cinephiles are usually not afraid of such trifles,

A rather difficult film for perception will certainly delight those viewers who are in constant search of new and often unexpected sensations from our cinema.
They say that you can't put a tight collar like Morrison, use drugs, like Vicious and still live as long as Bowie. Unless you're Iggy Pop. The cult American independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, whose documentary “Gimme Danger. The story of Iggy and The Stooges is definitely one of the most noteworthy premieres of the week.
