Synopsis

A small European town, where sisters Ayia and Mirra live, gets struck down by an unknown disease which takes many lives. Following their mother’s death, the younger sister falls ill. Having realized that conventional medicine is useless in the face of the sister’s disease, Ayia seeks help from Father Herman, a parish priest and a close family friend. In his house she finds books that are very far from the conventional religion. She gets to know that only penetration into Mirra’s sick subconscious mind and discovery of the true cause of her disease will give her a chance to save her sister. Ayia is ready to go through this terrifying ritual, dive into the depths of the subconscious mind, and face the demons residing there.

Buzz

“By far the most appealing aspect of III is its unconventional cinematography that, combined with its unusual setting, resembles a mixture of a World War II film and a piece of avant-garde horror. Director Pavel Khvaleev crafts a truly fascinating universe that works so well mainly due to his intelligent use of horror imagery.” – Cinema Slasher

“Brutal and Beautiful” – Movie Pilot

“Though it feels a bit familiar, like a darker, seedier version of The Cell if it had met and had relations with Silent Hill, I quite like III. Not only are the performances great, it features some pretty spectacular effects and an interesting visual style that works well to build the mood and atmosphere of the movie. III is a solid new entry into the supernatural horror canon.” – Quiet Earth

“haunting, beautiful and visually sumptuous”  – Dread Central
