Still More Gogol
It is early in the 18th century. Cartographer Jonathan Green is traveling east through Europe when he stumbles into a remote village surrounded by impenetrable forests and inexplicable evil. The action plays out over three terrifying nights in this, director Oleg Stepchenko’s new film based on Gogol’s horror classic Viy. The film (left) is set for release to Russian theaters in early March. Could this be part of a Gogolian cinematic wave? A film based on Gogol’s Cossack novel,Taras Bulba, was released last year by director Vladimir Bortko.
