Directed by Konstantin Ershov, Georgiy Kropachyov
Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol – and previously adapted by Mario Bava as BLACK SUNDAY – the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union remains genuinely frightening. In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem.

I dug this.
Boring, nothing scary or creepy. Some atmosphere - nothing worthwhile.
Pretty boring, nothing scary about this one.
Pretty lame, not scary, just boring.
This was a interesting movie. Some parts were very slow while others were very funny. If you don't watch for anything else, at least hang around till the end. That part is great with good makeup and effects for the time.
