VIDEO: Viy (1967)

In her belated Halloween special, Full of Questions showcases the first horror movie to ever come out of the Soviet Union. Based on a short story by Nikolai Gogol, which was in turn based on a Ukrainian folk tale, Viy (original title: Вий) tells the story of a priest-in-training who, after beating a woman to death (hey, she was a witch), is forced to spend three days praying over her body… but she’s not quite dead.

And no, in Soviet Russia, film does not review you!
