This April, Arrow Video asks, why don't you just die?...
...It had already been announced that Arrow Video would be bringing writer/director Kirill Sokolov's feature debut Why Don't You Just Die! to Blu-ray on April 21st, 2020, and now we're learning that the hilarious film will also have a limited theatrical run as well beginning on April 10th!
In Why Don't You Just Die!:
"Andrei, a detective and the world's most horrible father, brings together a terrible group of people in his apartment: his resentful actress daughter, an angry thug, and a cheated cop. Each one of them has a reason to want revenge..."
Said Sokolov, "Despite our exaggerated use of genre tropes and all the flashy effects, 'Why Don't You Just Die!' remains, for me, an incredibly personal and sincere story. The film's inherent violence is the result of reflection on the realities of life in Russia, modern relationships, and societal attitudes. The gallows humor which pervades the film is the only true reaction whatsoever to all of this. The film is intended as an emotional rollercoaster, making the audience laugh, cry, and laugh again - but then immediately feel a sense of unease for having laughed."
Theatrical markets for the film will include Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Knoxville, Ithaca, Houston, Lubbock, El Paso and Phoenix.
So if you live in one of those cities, don't miss the bloody mayhem that is Why Don't You Just Die! on the big screen in April!
