Red Krokodil tells the story of a man who, almost as a synecdoche, is meant to represent an ordinary man, or perhaps all men. It is the story of a man addicted to Krokodil that suddenly finds himself alone in a post-nuclear city similar to Chernobyl. His physical decay caused by the massive intake of drugs develops parallel to his inner world, as reality mixes with his hallucinations. The result is a film that uses the Krokodil as a metaphor of destruction.
Movie deals with various themes, from environmentalism to the more "mundane" generically related to the use of drugs, starting with a small introduction on Krokodil and its fertile existence due to the enrichment that the pharmaceutical industry in Russia will take. But the story is a pretext that I use to focus on psychological condition voted annulment from themselves and from the surrounding world, a vision apparently static, repetitive, which sees only a present and a future. The breakup of the body that
This drug causes, helped me to symbolize a breakup too visually Interior unstoppable.

Domiziano Cristopharo, an independent film director from Rome, has been the first Italian director in years to try and revive the erotic/horror film genre. Four years ago he obtained enormous audience and critical acclaim with HOUSE OF FLESH MANNEQUINS (starring international horror actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice). HOUSE OF FLESH MANNEQUINS won six international awards and eight international film festival presentations.
Domiziano Cristopharo has frequently been compared as a perfect mix between Fellini and Dario Argento: Cristopharo's aesthetic has a vintage quality: he is simultaneously extreme in style, shocking, and yet classic.
To those who define him "pornographic," he responds by quoting Picasso:
"Art is never chaste and we should keep her away from pure ignorants. It it were chaste, it wouldn't be art at all."
In his career he worked also with/for: Carlo De Mejo (City of living Dead), Maria Rosaria Omaggio (Nightmare city), Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), Frank Laloggia (Lady in white), Venantino Venantini (Ladyhawke), Giovanni Lombardo Radice/John Morghen (Cannibal Ferox), Mariagrazia Cucinotta (El dia de la bestia), Stefano Cassetti (Roberto Succo), Romano Scavolini (Nightmare in a damaged Brain)
