Viy or Spirit of Evil
Viy or Spirit of Evil (Russin: Вий; Viy) is the 1967 Soviet mystery horror, based on the novel of the Nikolai Gogol Viy. Beeng the fourth ecranisation (the previosly three (1909, 1912 and 1916 are belives to be lost) it's very close to original text. The novel also was another three ecranisations (1990's A Holy Place (Sveto mesto), 2006's The Power of Fear (Vedma) and 2014's Forbidden Empire althought the last three versions are very loosely based on the novel. Accisentely, this is the only Soviet horror movie of those years.
