Aik Karapetian's The Man in the Orange Jacket (M.O.Zh.) - a.k.a. "M.O.Ž." (alternative transliteration - the primary title is written in Cyrillic script, even though the movie is a Latvian-Estonian production) - is set to have its world première at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival in Montréal, which runs from July 17th to August 5th.

The screenplay for The Man in the Orange Jacket was written by Karapetian. The movie stars Maxim Lazarev, Aris Rozentals, and Anta Aizupe.

Here's a synopsis for The Man in the Orange Jacket from the production: "A young man is fired from his job at the sea port, and begins to stalk his boss and his boss' beautiful wife. After a blood-chilling turn of events, he attempts to escape his past by moving into the lavish mansion previously owned by his boss. The embittered young man tries to assume a new identity and lead a luxurious life, but nothing will prepare him for an unsettling visit by a vaguely familiar guest. After that unnerving encounter, the house will no longer be a safe haven, instead becoming a twisted and dangerous trap haunted by menacing spirits."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the theatrical trailer for Kôta Yoshida's Japanese sadomasochistic lesbian high school girls movie The Torture Club (Chotto kawaii aian meiden); that movie is set to have its international (i.e., outside-of-Japan) première at this year's Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan) in Bucheon, which runs from July 17th to July 27th.

Here's a description of The Man in the Orange Jacket from Fantasia: "[A] collective rage boils within. He and hundreds of employees have just lost their jobs because their boss selfishly decided to sell his haven, proving once again that the poor pay the price while the rich reap the rewards. But not this time. Dressed in his uniform and armed with his tools, he stealthily infiltrates his boss's house and kills him in cold blood. His boss's breathtaking girlfriend knows a similar fate. Justice has been served. With the bodies safely tucked away in the basement, the man in the orange jacket can finally celebrate his victory - time for the high life of classy restaurants, escorts and fancy cars. All he needs is to appropriate his victim's identity. The good times will be short-lived, however. Just when he's beginning to enjoy his new life, strange sounds start to trouble his sleep. His peace of mind is also affected by the intrusion of a strange character, not to mention this menacing silhouette that spies from afar, a silent observer that scrutinizes his every move. A nerve-wracking frenzy begins when paranoia invades the man with the orange jacket. Music! ¶ Immediately commit the name Aik Karapetian to memory. This Armenian filmmaker's THE MAN IN THE ORANGE JACKET is this year's most groundbreaking dramatic horror picture. Inspired by Lars Von Trier, the student surpasses the master with an audacious slasher that intelligently criticizes the economic class struggle. It's a finely directed film that also manages to instill a subtle, soul-haunting fear that refuses to loosen its grip. The protagonist's fears quickly become our own as we're slyly drawn into a delirious world of Kafkaesque absurdity. Each new scene comes with its own set of chills, dragging us deeper and deeper into a shady world of which the worst nightmares are made. Take our word for it, THE MAN IN THE ORANGE JACKET equals David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY in its capacity to transform everyday life into a falsely familiar universe in which all points of reference crumble and make way for an unfathomable terror. It also has several scenes of unbearably realistic violence, whose hardness sometimes recall the cinema of Bruno Dumont. For all those who believe the fright flick incapable of reinventing itself, THE MAN IN THE ORANGE JACKET steps up as a provocative and unforgettable rebuttal that, much like last year's ACROSS THE RIVER, never forgets its roots. It definitely deserves its place within the pantheon of prodigies."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailers for Shion Sono's Tokyo Tribe.
