Some of the 'witch' scenes and the ending where Viy appears were toned down due to technological limitations as well as then current restrictions on Soviet film production. The directors were able to avoid the previous restrictions by using what was considered a 'folk tale'.
This was officially the first Soviet-era horror film released in the USSR.

As the other reviewer has pointed out it's not really a horrifying horror film but it does get quite tense and there's a real sense of drama about it; especially in the build up of each consecutive night.
The protagonist is funny and engaging making for a watchable performance. Elements are camp but if you like a more artistic approach favouring style over realism then this is a little gem of a movie.
Also of note for those wary of foreign/subtitled films, the pace is snappy and I was surprised when it finished as it didn't feel like I had been watching it for that long.
This isn't Hellraiser but it is a wonderful experience that should delight any fan of stylised cinema.
A young trainee-priest is engaged to watch over the body of a recently-deceased young woman, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy farmer, for three nights before her funeral; but knows something no-one else does - she's a witch! After being locked in to the chapel every evening, he is tormented throughout each night by various ways and things!
I cannot recommend this enough! If you like creepy films you'll love this. It looks like it was shot yesterday, and it genuinely gave me shivers down my spine :)

It's all in subtitles but it doesn't detract from a good movie about a group of students in Russia based on a short story. Read morePublished on 9 Jun. 2013 by Mr. Jeffrey J. D. Norman
