A LONELY PLACE FOR DYING, the critically acclaimed new dramatic thriller starring and produced by AMERICAN HORROR STORY star James Cromwell, has been banned in Russia.
The film, also featuring HITCHCOCK’s Michael Wincott, is a cold-war thriller, set in the ’70s, that pits a KGB mole against a CIA agent.
Director Justin Eugene Evans has been given no reason for the ban in Russia, but can only assume it’s because of the brow-raising and controversial storyline.
The film has been granted a U.S release via iTunes on
