ABOUT ABOUT

EAST COAST PREMIERE

Life in Vienna has put the Turkish-born taxi driver Ozge (Violetta Schurawlow) against the ropes both. To relieve stress caused by failed romance, family drama, and financial strain, she fights in Thai boxing matches. So when Ozge witnesses a horrific murder from her apartment window, she isn’t about to back down from the Islamic fundamentalist serial killer who now wants her dead. She’s ready to win the ensuing cat-and-mouse game by any means necessary.

With murder scenes shot like vintage Italian Giallo, COLD HELL taps into brutal horror, but Oscar-winning director Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS) isn’t just concerned with bloodshed. He’s also focused on BOURNE-like action, giving the extremely badass Schurawlow ample opportunity to give one of the best female ass-kicker performances in recent memory. The cumulative effect is pure action-horror bliss. —Matt Barone
