Oh the things we’ll do for love People are willing to make some extreme changes in their life to be with someone who has captured their heart. They will even experience huge adventures that would seem totally out of character for them at any earlier point in their lives. In director Danil Grinkin’s 2020 horror comedy creepy bride, the American leading man has no special person in his life, but he is so desperate for love that he travels to Russia hoping to find the love of his life there. One could also describe what he does as going to Russia in hopes of hooking up with a random Russian girl, but we’ll take the more romantic view.
Sometimes things go horribly wrong when people take big steps for love, and that’s the way it’s in creepy bride. Therefore, the film carries this title and is classified as a horror comedy. The random Russian girl our hero meets in this movie is nobody he ever wanted to meet, neither in Russia, nor in the US, nor in any other country. This poor guy had to pay for plane tickets and endure international travel only to end up in a living nightmare.
Directed by Danil Grinkin, also known as Dan Grin creepy bride based on a screenplay by first author Anatol Ardin. Ardin also wrote the synopsis, available on the film’s IMDb page, which tells you exactly what to expect from the film up to the point where the horror kicks in:
A young American employee Anthony, recently divorced, led a lonely life. His old friend Matt didn’t return calls for several days and it appeared he went somewhere without warning any of his friends. One day noises were heard from Matt’s apartment and Anthony went to see what had happened there. Suddenly he stumbled over an unfamiliar beautiful girl and fell down in surprise, hitting his head. As it turned out, the girl was Natasha, Matt’s girlfriend. Matt heard the noise and rushed inside. He and Natasha carried Anthony to his apartment. The next day, Matt and Natasha told Anthony that they had just returned from Russia and advised him to go where he could find a beautiful bride. Natasha assured Anthony that Russia is a very safe place and a lot of funny things are happening. After some hesitation, Anthony went to Russia. After settling in the hotel and resting, he went to the bar in the evening, where he met a lonely, dancing, beautiful blonde named Nina. One of the bar patrons warns Anthony that Nina is a witch and cannot be kissed. Anthony didn’t take it seriously. The couple had fun at the restaurant and Nina invited Anthony over to her home. Well drunk, Anthony agreed.
The film stars are Vitt Ray, Evgeniya Yarushnikova, Andrew Craig, Arnella Zubkova, Diana Belova, Roman Danilychev, Svetlana Egorova and Fluora Iskhakova.
Grin previously directed the documentary unbroken, about the friendship formed between pairs of competitive skaters from Russia and America. One of the skaters was Natalia Zabiiako, to whom he was also intermittently married.
creepy bride was a Russian production presented in English, which probably explains why the sound is a bit strange and everyone was dubbed. This is not a film likely to belong to similar ones Evil Dead II, Shaun der Deadand An American werewolf in London on top horror comedy lists, but you might get a kick out of it.
