Novaya Zemlya

Year: 2008

Director: Aleksandr Melnik

The year is 2013 and, with the abolition of the death penalty, prisons are overflowing across the globe presenting a major problem for the authorities. The solution is to ship a consignment of them to a far-flung, freezing god-foresaken place and let them colonise it.

When they find themselves deposited at their new home, the authorities leave a pile of numbered keys with which to unlock their chains, and then retreat to a safe distance. All hell breaks loose and amongst scenes of carnage, the Russians kill the Chechens with uncontrolled acts of murderous violence. It isn’t long before Kingpin Monkey has taken charge, and with the help of his lackies, a new prison is created where punishment is fatal.
