Russian mafia... Insane hostages... Twin serial killers...
April 18th see the theatrical release of the new UK horror comedy Botched, directed by Kitt Ryan and starring Stephen Dorff.
The film received a mixed reaction at last year's FrightFest (see our report on the film here), but after the recent successes of such home-grown horror-comedy hits such as Shaun of the Dead, Severance and The Cottage, who's to say that Botched can't follow in the same footsteps. Scroll below for a synopsis, UK Quad poster, stills from the film, and links to the trailer and a clip from the movie.
Also why not check out the official website at www.botchedmovie.com and play the Botched movie game, where you play a mace-wielding serial killer named Hugo – let three people escape alive and the game is over!

Ritchie Donovan (Stephen Dorff) is a professional thief whose luck has just run out. The only survivor from a heist that goes terribly wrong, Ritchie is forced to take the rap and is sent to Russia to steal a priceless antique cross, locked in a safe on the penthouse floor of a Moscow skyscraper.
Things start badly and go rapidly downhill when, during the robbery, Ritchie and his Russian accomplices are forced to take hostages because they are trapped by the police, on the unused 13th floor.
30th May 04 When the guests do arrive, they have an amusing habit of dying. This is obviously bad for business and so, with family honour in jeopardy they take quite quickly to hiding the bodies, usually accompanied by some big musical number.
