Casper Van Dien is most definitely not welcoming our new rat overlords.
We first told you about Vladimir Uglichin’s Ratpocalypse way back in 2015, when it was released in Moscow. Two years later, the film is finally headed stateside courtesy of Gravitas Ventures, who will bring it to US audiences on December 12.
Ahead of the release comes a delightfully silly new trailer!
In the film…
“American Senator John Perryman (Van Dien), a man of pure and humble soul with a warrior’s disposition, delivers a fiery speech in Moscow about the country’s main evil – corruption. A corruption so pervasive it will turn men into “rats.” He declares that he was ordered to speak to them from above and threatens everyone with the loss of their human form, which draws only guffaws and resentment from the people. Many take the Senator for a madman as gradually, all his friends and relatives turn away from him. Eventually the Senator meets a mysterious girl in the streets who seems to be his guardian angel but soon, everything he talked about in Moscow begins to come true, triggering panic in Russia and around the world.”
“Full of unexpected moments and plot twists both curious and amusing, Ratpocalypse brings the intimidating and often horrific world of politics to new levels of reality.”
