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.

A bit of a relic at this point, but incredible! Really neat. You don't see Nikilai Gogol's name every day, either. This movie is witchy and kinda fun, with wicked effects and great art. And they really left it all on the field for that finale! If you can take it for what it is, being of its time, you're in for a treat.
