The Russian Bride is an upcoming American horror thriller motion picture written and directed by Michael S. Ojeda, starring Corbin Bernsen, Kristina Pimenova and Oksana Orlan. Producers include Jeff Miller and Philip J Day.
Karl Frederick, an American billionaire living in a mansion outside Detroit, browses the internet for a new bride. He finds Nina, a beautiful Russian woman, and invites her and her 11-year old daughter Dasha to come to America.
- Every year, men entice Internet brides to a foreign land, only to treat their new wives as slaves. Behind tightly closed doors, neighbors, and even police, often ignore their cries for help. It’s a huge problem that needs light to be focused on to it.
The Russian Bride is a low-budget film by independent film company Reigning Entertainment. A limited liability company was set up in Michigan to facilitate its production. Most of the film's budget has been funded by private investors.
The film counts a number of producers and executive producers, none associated with larger film studios. Ojeda has teamed up with Day (The Amityville Terror), Gurvitz (Avenged), Curtis and Zulkowski (53206: Milwaukee) before. Miller wrote and produced The Burning Dead.
The film features child model Kristina Pimenova, who has millions of followers on social media, in her first lead role as Dasha. Oksana Orlan, Ojeda's award-winning star in Lana's Rain, plays Nina, the bride. Corbin Bernsen, known for his role as Arnold Becker in L.A. Law, is billionaire Karl Frederick.
- Kristina Pimenova is a talented and beautiful young model, and with the support of fans we hope this movie is the stepping stone to a huge career as an actress.
Supporting characters include Karl's maid Maria, his driver Hagen, and uncle Yuri. The teaser trailer shows cameo appearances by producer Jeff Miller (clergyman) and Kristina's mother Glikeriya Pimenova (bride picture).
