The Man in the Orange Jacket (M.O.Ž.) is a Latvian horror film about a dock worker who takes revenge on the port owner who fires him. This well received movie is the first Latvian horror film since Spider in 1992.

After a set of ruthless redundancies against striking workers at the local port, the business’s owner decides to take a restful vacation with his new wife in Italy. The night before they are set to leave, one of the laid-off workers, a young man in an orange dock worker’s vest, breaks into his luxurious villa. The intruder’s revengeful intentions take a dark turn very quickly.

The Man in the Orange Jacket attracted the attention of a wide range of foreign film critics and horror genre enthusiasts. The film screened at major film festivals across the world, traveling across Europe, the U.S., and Canada. Simon Laperier, curator of the Montreal International Fantasy Film Festival, called the movie that year’s “most revolutionary work in the horror film genre,” drawing parallels in the film script with the style of acclaimed directors, Lars von Trier and David Lynch.

This is truly a unique, ingenious film that has not gotten the attention it deserves. Consider watching The Man in the Orange Jacket for a journey into the darkest depths of the human psyche.
