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.

In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch.

Overall not a bad watch. In my opinion it gets a little slow and dated in the middle and has a few questionable things happen. A very strong start and finish but if you aren’t into older, more dated slow burn type movies then this definitely isn’t for you. On the other hand, if you are then absolutely check it out

Echoing what a lot of the other reviewers are saying: not what I expected but great visuals and legitimately funny. At first I thought some of the humor was just an issue of poor dubbing (characters always asking about vodka gave that impression) but then I saw that it was there on purpose. If you give this one a chance till the climax (it's only 77 mins long so com'on) it's worth it.
