Remember that movie Fedor Emelianenko filmed a couple years ago? Well, it’s finally being released under the title “The Salamander Key,” formerly known as “The Fifth Execution.” The movie premieres tonight in Moscow. Considering it’s in Russian (I think), those of us in the states will probably have to wait until it hits Netflix and hope they include subtitles. Check out the trailer above.
Premised on a group of international scientists who disappear on a remote island in South-Eastern Asia while conducting advanced medical research, the Rescue Group commissioned to seek out the team locate remnants of a high-tech laboratory revealing evidence that experimental testing has been conducted on animals and humans; the last communication from the scientists prior to their disappearance cautions the world of immanent, grave global disaster.
“Today we’ve been given a priceless gift – the Elixir of Life…” was the sensational statement decreed by the CEO of ‘Farm-line Corporation’ in Bangkok. The miraculous discovery came whilst researching the salamander’s ability to renew its cells.
‘Congressman commits suicide to mark the eighth death in one month!’ ‘An epidemic of suicide!’ reads headlines on the front pages of all major newspapers, leaving one of Thailand’s top-cops to initiate the investigation behind the continuous string of rash, mysterious deaths.
What joins all these events together? And why is a small island in South-Eastern Asia key to solving the complex questions. The Salamander Key opens the door for a peek into a scientific breakthrough abused for personal gain.
