Evil Spirit of Yambuy (Zloy dukh Yambuya), The
The Evil Spirit of Yambuy (Zloy dukh Yambuya) is a Soviet 1977 adventure movie directed by Boris Buneev. Several members of mapping expedition in Eastern Siberia mysteriously disappear in Yambuy mountains. The native Evenki tribesmen speak about an evil spirit that lives on Yambuy. Then it turns out that the "evil spirit" is a monstrous man-eating brown bear. Fedoseev, the head of the expedition, and Kararbakh, the old Evenki hunter, go to find and kill the beast. The movie is based on real events that that occurred in late 1940s, and the main characters of the movie are real people. The Evenki characters, including Kararbakh, are played by non-professional actors.
The following weapons are seen in the movie The Evil Spirit of Yambuy (Zloy dukh Yambuya):
Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
Grigory Fedoseev (Yuri Zaborovsky) carries a Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine. In the final scene old hunter Kararbakh also uses an M38 carbine.
Kochetov NK-8,2 Carbine
A rare Kochetov NK-8,2 hunting carbine is carried by radioman Pavel (Filimon Sergeev).
Mosin Nagant/Frolov Bolt Action Shotgun
Most of Evenki guides of the expedition carry bolt action shotguns. These guns are converted Mosin Nagant Rifles, known under the nickname "frolovka" after engineer Pyotr Frolov.
Berdan Bolt Action Shotgun
One of the members of the expedition is seen with a bolt action shotgun that is a converted Berdan Rifle. Old Kararbakh's weapon is also a Berdan shotgun, but of another version (it looks like that he carries two different guns in several scenes).
Double Barreled Shotun
A double barreled shotgun is carried by one of Evenki guides.
In one scene Fedoseev and Pavel find a damaged IZh-5 single barreled shotgun that belongs to one of the victims of the man-eating bear. This shotgun lacks the groove with the spring latch on the handguard so it is an early model of 1920s - early 1930s production.
