A crowd funding campaign has began for suspense thriller "The Russian Bride".A Russian woman “NINA” travels with her eleven-year-old daughter “DAcampaign SHA” to America, with plans to marry an eccentric Billionaire, “KARL FREDERICK” offering them hopes for a better life.
Arriving at his luxurious estate in the dead of winter and miles from civilization, the two are quickly enchanted by the reclusive Baron’s charm. But promise of a fairy tale existence ends, as Karl's tragic secret past is revealed and his resulting madness surfaces, turning their lives into a living hell. In a shocking final act, the barons sinister plans are exposed and the mother and daughter will be fighting for their survival.
The campaign is taking place on Indiegogo. "The Russian Bride" stars Corbin Bernsen, Oksana Orlan, and Kristina Pimenova. The film is directed by Michael S. Ojeda.
Pimenova, one of the world’s youngest supermodels (having modeled for such noted brands as Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, and Armani), will make her feature acting debut in the film. At age 9, she was dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” by Women Daily Magazine.
THE RUSSIAN BRIDE is partially financed, but the filmmakers are launching the crowdfunding campaign to supplement the funding and to give Pimenova’s millions of Facebook and Instagram followers a chance to see the future star in a major acting role. Perks include visits to the set and roles in the film.
Writer/director Ojeda’s supernatural horror thriller AVENGED, about a woman reincarnated as the spirit of an Apache warrior who seeks revenge on the men who brutalized her, was a critical and commercial hit, appearing in Sitges, Screamfest, and 15 other festivals before its release in 2015.
“Kristina Pimenova is a talented and beautiful young model, and with the support of fans we hope this movie is the stepping stone to a huge career as an actress,” says Ojeda. “Fans of AVENGED will love this movie too, especially the shocking climax.”
THE RUSSIAN BRIDE should be finished in mid-late 2017 for festival consideration.
