Pyotr465 ​was generating buzz even before it was finished, due to
director Blake Mawson attempting to explore the increasingly dangeous
homophobia in Russia while giving things a horror movie twist. Now the
short film has been released online for us all to take a look.

When we saw the film at the Iris Prize Festival in 2016 we said,
‘Pyotr495 is set in modern-day Russia, where a young man heads out for a
hook-up with a guy he’s met on a dating app. However, once there he
discovers the guy and his friends actually intend to punish and torture
him for being gay – which in their minds also makes him a pedophile.
They may have bitten off more than they can chew though when something
monstrous emerges.

‘It’s an interesting idea and deftly brings a touch of supernatural
horror into a gay-themed short. The film also consciously engages with
the situation in Russia, where the gay propaganda laws have allowed
homophobes to feel they have impunity to kidnap and torture gay men (and
in some cases worse). Horror fans will definitely appreciate where the
short goes, which starts out feeling like a drama before taking a
bloody, revenge fantasy turn.’

 An unusual gay themed short film which meshes together social commentary
with the visceral horror/blood-and-gore genres. Though filmed in Canada
it is in Russian with hardcoded English subtitles.
