From the Finnish filmmakers behind the wonderfully strange hillbilly horror flick Kyrsyä – Tuftland, a new release is about to see the light of day. Enter Punainen Kohina (eng. Red Static).
Red Static is a thriller story about very current themes, alienation and mental issues. The synopsis is simple: “A lonely man living on a secluded farm invites his childhood friends for a visit. He has a plan that will shock everyone who ever knew him and change their lives forever.” Childhood friends calling back reminds me of Stephen King’s It, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I’m especially happy to see this bunch continuing their journey into the rural corners of Finland.
Produced by Roope Olenius and Veera W. Vilo, the movie is written and directed by Sami Pöyry. The leading roles are played by Jari Manninen, Olenius, Vilo and Saara Elina.
The films premiere is set on the 9th of April, depending obviously on the Covid-19 situation. You can check the films freshly released trailer below.
