Early 18th century. Cartographer Jonathan Green undertakes a scientific voyage from Europe to the East. Having passed through Transylvania and crossed the Carpathian Mountains, he finds himself in a small village lost in impassible woods. Nothing but chance and heavy fog could bring him to this cursed place. People who live here do not resemble any other people which the traveler saw before that. The villagers, having dug a deep moat to fend themselves from the rest of the world, share a naive belief that they could save themselves from evil, failing to understand that evil has made its nest in their souls and is waiting for an opportunity to gush out upon the world.

An adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's popular 1835 short story about the demon Viy -- whose gaze was deadly if met eye-to-eye -- it was originally scheduled to be released in 2009 to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Gogol's birth. See more »
I did not like this film. The plot is week. 3D effects are fine, but they can not improve the overall impression. The plot of original Russian film "Viy" (1967) was is fully distorted. The original film was really scarring. The new film has nothing common with Gogol's great book. It should have another title, not "Viy". Ukrainian men are shown as stupid and permanently drunk people. Ukrainian women are also shown as silly witches. But the hero of the film is an English scientist. The general idea is that Ukainian (and Russian) people can do nothing without help of Europe. The is no truth in the film. Even more, it is harmful and anti-patriotic. Do not recommend it.
