Absolutely faboulos movie
13 June 2018 | by svetlanatulaiSee all my reviews

The best Russian horror movie I saw, which could be the worthy competitor of western horror movies. I love the book and read it many times, I thought the movie will not be able fully describe the mysterious world of Gogol's stories, but I was excited from the first to the last minute. Playing of the actors are awesome, the special effects are fabulous and THE MUSIC! Just fantastic and already in my playlist. Highly recommend to see especially for lovers of Gogol's oeuvre.
