Stric still v2

Yugoslavia, late 1980s. A family is visited by their beloved uncle who came from Germany for Christmas holidays. Gifts are unwrapped, polite words are spoken, and above all, respect is given to their wealthy uncle. But soon it becomes clear that something is horribly wrong.

Eleven years after their low-budget horror comedy Zagorje Specialty, writers-directors Andrija Mardešić and David Kapac return to the genre scene with a brilliant thriller that replaces offbeat jokes and gore with tense psychological horror, masterfully escalated to the shocking finale. The Uncle is sure to thrill both genre lovers and arthouse fans, so make sure you attend this unusual Christmas gathering!
