"Baba Yaga: Terror of the Dark Forest" is a Horror movie in which we watch a young boy observing the strange behavior of the nanny his parents hired to take care of his sister along with some strange things that happened in his house from the moment the nanny started working there. He starts searching for it but one day her sister gone missing and nobody remembers neither her nor the nanny.

I had high expectations from this movie because of the back story of Baba Yaga but I was disappointed by the result. The plot was simple but nice, there were also some good scenes but despite that the movie was average. There was not any peak in the movie or any interpretation of the cast that I will remember in the future. Lastly, I believe that "Baba Yaga: Terror of the Dark Forest" is just another average horror movie with no surprises or anything new to show so, if you don't want to waste your time and watch another average movie like this, just watch some other horror movie.
