Everyone has a fear. Maybe yours is Arachnophobia (spiders) or Ophidiophobia (snakes). Mine happens to be Musophobia, rats, mice. I don’t know if it’s the teeth or those bald tales, but I do know that I had a little trouble watching the new trailer for Ratpocalypse.
First reported back in 2015 when it was released in Moscow, Vladimir Uglichin’s Ratpocalypse stars Casper Van Dien. After a long wait, the film is finally coming stateside.
The film centers on “American Senator John Perryman (Van Dien), a man of pure and humble soul with a warrior’s disposition, delivers a fiery speech in Moscow about the country’s main evil – corruption. A corruption so pervasive it will turn men into “rats.” He declares that he was ordered to speak to them from above and threatens everyone with the loss of their human form, which draws only guffaws and resentment from the people. Many take the Senator for a madman as gradually, all his friends and relatives turn away from him. Eventually, the Senator meets a mysterious girl in the streets who seems to be his guardian angel but soon, everything he talked about in Moscow begins to come true, triggering panic in Russia and around the world.”
Victoria Summer, Linda Bella, Lidiya Korothko, Aleksandr Khachatryan, and John Vodka co-star.
