THE ACCLAIMED FESTIVAL FAVORITE THAT’S TERRIFIED AUDIENCES AROUND THE GLOBE COMES HOME THIS THURSDAY!
Özge (Violetta Schurawlow, HEAD FULL OF HONEY) is a young Turkish-born taxi driver, who attends evening classes and is an ambitious Thai-boxer. She trains hard and rarely speaks. One day, Özge witnesses a brutal murder. The suspect is an unhinged serial killer, inspired by extremist Islam. Convinced that the woman has seen him, the two enter a tense life-and-death struggle that will leave neither unscathed.
In his job at the Vienna Police Department, Christian Steiner (Tobias Moretti, THE DARK VALLEY) is often contacted by people of immigrant backgrounds. Years ago, his wife left him – taking their child with her. Since then, he’s been living with his father and caring for him as best he can. Steiner finds it very difficult to trust other people, especially women… but now, one desperately needs his help.
COLD HELL also stars Sammy Sheik (AMERICAN SNIPER), Friedrich von Thun (SCHINDLER’S LIST), and Robert Palfrader. It is directed by Academy Award-winner Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS) and written by Martin Ambrosch.
This Thursday, March 15th, COLD HELL debuts exclusively on Shudder.
