Architect Frank wakes up from unconsciousness – squashed in a building site toilet. And it gets worse: In order not to be blown up during the imminent demolition, Frank must make his way out of his blue grave in one hour. A race against time begins.
HOLY SHIT!, the black-humoured real-time thriller by Lukas Rinker is the ultimate worst-case scenario. It is both possible and unimaginable – Think of PHONE BOOTH meets 127 HOURS, but shit gets real!

The horror is awesome, with scenes of body harm that will make you clench your teeth until your eyes pop out or burst out laughing. The final moments of Holy Shit! are a cherry on top, a crescendo of absurdity and violence as the deadline nears.


Best blood (and shit) bath.
