The Viy (NEWS)
The Viy (1967) from Russia is one of my all time favorite foreign horror movie classics. Not to give anything away for those who haven't seen it, a young priest accidently kills a witch and is then forced to perform last rites over her corpse for three consecutive nights inside a haunted church populated by an endless array of supernatural horrors. Based on Nikolai Gogol's classic story, The Viy was recently remade again in Russia though I have not yet seen this new version. And now Fangoria is running a story that it's being remade yet again (click HERE for the story), this time starring Christopher Lee and directed by Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund. Not sure what to think about that... but see the original!
