Day Watch

From the visionary force behind 'Night Watch'


Day Watch
The second episode in the Moscow-based horror series sees the continuation of the 1000 year struggle between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness. The plot revolves around some magical chalk which can make wishes come true. Naturally everyone wants it. The three main characters involved are a man (Light), his love interest (Light) and his estranged son (Dark). When these three meet on the field of war, expect plenty of off-the-wall action. In Russian with English subtitles.

128 minutes.
