I’m not talking about a remake of the 1978 medical horror; Coma (aka The Coma aka Koma) is an original Russian sci-fi fantasy with a trailer that will blow your freaking mind! Directed by Nikita Argunov from a script he penned with Alexey Gravitsky and Timofei Dekin, the film stars Rinal Mukhametov, Aleksei Serebryakov, and Anton Pampushnyy. Have a look at the trailer below and we think you’ll agree: This is a beautiful nightmare unlike any other!
Official Synopsis: After a mysterious and terrible accident, a young and talented architect finds himself in a very strange world, only partially resembling reality: a world that is based on the memories of reality of people who are in a deep coma. Human memory is fragmented, chaotic and changeable, and the same is true of the setting of COMA – a strange space where rivers, glaciers and cities can fit in one room, where any laws of physics can be broken. The main character has to figure out the laws of this space, fight for life, find love, and finally find an exit to the real world, eventually realizing a new way of understanding what the world of COMA actually is.
While this doesn’t appear to be a horror movie per se, the idea of being trapped within one’s own mind is disturbing. Coma is slated for a January 2018 release and I personally can’t wait to completely engross myself in this hallucinatory experience.
