The Gift

This sci-fi film set in Russia is one testament that anything belonging to the genre may not just be about a thrilling display of robots and time machines as products of humans and science and technology. The Gift got an excellent direction from Carl E. Rinsch as he first set the mood of the story in a quite silent and menacing way with a man holding the gift, extravagantly wrapped in red and gold, and travelling towards a house where the peak of the action finally begins.
