Viy

Directed by Konstantin Ershov & Georgi Kropachyov
With Leonid Kuravlyov, Natalya Varley, Aleksey Glazyrin
1967, 77min, 35mm

 

The first—and for many years only—horror film produced in the Soviet Union, this rarely-seen, sinister fairy tale boasts eerie, expressionist atmospherics and eye-popping special effects. Based on a story by Nikolai Gogol, it charts the unhappy fate of a young priest (Kuravlyov) compelled to sit vigil at the wake of a beautiful (un)dead witch (Varley) for three terrifying, demon-plagued nights. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

 
Neither God nor Santa Maria

Directed by Samuel M. Delgado & Helena Girón
2015, 12min, DCP

 

Memories of magic and mysticism mingle with ethereal footage of the witch women of the remote island of Lanzarote in this eerily beautiful short.
