Viy, Or Spirit Of Evil (1967)

Horror · 1h 17m


The film is based on the story of the same name by the great Russian writer Nikolai Gogol. The main protagonist of the film, the theology student Thomas Brutus, met Viy, the devil's emissary on earth, one night under some mysterious circumstances. A young woman died in the village, and poor Thomas was ordered to read the burial service over her. But that woman happened to be a witch. And Viy was by the side of the deceased… Thomas saw him, accompanied by the retinue of vampires and werewolves, on the third, most horrible, night of his service… All the characters of this mystical story are heroes from the whimsical, twilight world, where dreams are interspersed with everyday live, reality with fantasy. The acclaimed master of fairy-tale films Alexander Ptushko directed this motion picture and staged all the superimposition shots and stunts.
