“A splatterpunk action comedy… gleefully dark”
-Hollywood Reporter

Though COVID-19 may have stunted the film’s theatrical rollout, Arrow Video is bringing a little chaos into our mundane quarantine lives with the digital release of WHY DON’T YOU JUST DIE!

A blood-soaked black comedy in the vein of Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Wright, the film tells the story of Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov), a young man hell-bent on killing his girlfriend’s father (Vitaliy Khaev) to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey’s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don’t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable opponent than he anticipated… and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

Writer/director Kirill Sokolov’s festival favorite presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. WHY DON’T YOU JUST DIE! will be available nationwide on Digital HD April 20th.
