The very dark fairy tale has played Fantasia, Screamfest, Bucheon and more.

Red Water Entertainment has announced that it will release KRATT on digital HD and cable VOD platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, iNDemand and DISH on October 11. Written and directed by Rasmus Merivoo, it stars Mari Lill, Nora Merivoo, Harri Merivoo, Elise Tekko, Roland Treima, Mari-Liis Lill and Marek Tammets. The synopsis: “Children are left at Grandma’s without smartphones. Real life seems boring, working feels hard. Luckily they find instructions for Kratt–a magical creature from old Estonian mythology who will do whatever its master says. All they have to do now is buy a soul from the Devil! Life stops being boring in a bloody way…”
