Arrow Video Releasing 'Why Don't You Just Die!' on Blu-Ray in the UK This April

Director Kirill Sokolov‘s gruesome splatter flick Why Don’t You Just Die! is coming to Blu-Ray in the UK from Arrow Video on April 20th, 2020. Cover artwork and package details are listed below, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style, described as a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humor (The Hollywood Reporter) and an amazing first feature from a filmmaker to watch (Screen Anarchy).

Synopsis: “Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend’s parents apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honour. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable not to mention ruthless opponent than he anticipated and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don t You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema s brightest rising stars.
