Item Description
"…a powerful, important film that deserves a wide audience. As liberal fascism rears its ugly head again with renewed vigor, we need to carefully consider where Leviathan (humanistic, “cradle to grave” statism) has lead us in the past. Never say that it can’t happen again.” Eric Holmberg, The Apologetics Group

“… absolutely awesome Russian realism. This movie is definitely one of the darkest views on the Red Terror that took place from 1918 to 1921. Totally gripping and shocking…this movie reveals more historic facts on genocide than any other film, including “Schindler’s List” and “Hotel Rwanda.” There are no sentimental characters, only the bloody and merciless face of Russian revolution. If you want to have an unforgettable evening, see will stick in your mind for a long time!” IMDB review


Synopsis: Srubov is a part of CHEKA, the secret police Lenin established after the Bolshevik Revolution. They arrest, interview for a minute, try in ten seconds, and execute intellectuals, aristocrats, Jews, clergy, and their families. In the building basement, five people at a time are shot as they stand naked facing wooden doors. No one to remember their last words; no martyrs, just anonymous bodies. Daily, the kangaroo court, the executions, the loading of bodies onto wagons. Srubov is cold, distant, sexually dysfunctional, and a deep thinker, hated by former friends and his family. As he tries to reason the nature of revolution and the purpose of CHEKA, he slowly goes mad.

About this edition: Sadly, ‘The Chekist” has never been released in the West or anywhere else that we know of. This was taken from a rare broadcast on British TV, professionally transferred to DVD – with the audio and video streams digitally optimized. The end result: a solid 5 on a scale of 1 to 10 in quality; not great but still very watchable.
