The long-awaited sequel
19 April 2018 | by dashulka-76217See all my reviews

I was absolutely in love with "Gogol. Nachalo" and couldn't wait to see the sequel. It's awesome. "Viy" differes from the first part, but in a good way. Again, all the actors are great, the decorations, costumes and makeup are wonderful. Thank you for it))) Now I'm longing to see how it all will end.
