Mystic Thriller Viy Goes on General Release in Russia

The newly released mystical thriller Viy is said to be based on the famous Nikolay Gogol’s same-name story.

      However, there is apparently little left in the movie from the primary source.

      The film production was launched in 2008. Two years prior to that the teaser of the would-be thriller was released.

      Only the story line of Khoma Brut and the enchanting lamia, as well as the weird monster Viy with the chilling exclamation “Raise my eyelids” were taken from the original plot. All other things were envisioned and added by our contemporaries. They introduced the story of the cartographer Jonathan Green travelling from Britain to Eastern Europe. By coincidence he finds himself in the village, where the “sinister story” happened with Khoma and tries to find out the incident history. The film makers turned the whole village damned: every night all the Cossacks become monsters.
