Severin Films To Release Standard Edition Blu-ray Of Soviet Horror Film 'Viy'

Back in June, Severin Films released a limited edition Blu-ray of Konstantin Ershov and Georgiy Kropachyov's classic horror fantasy film Viy. Long story short, it quickly sold out. Well, due to popular demand, the company has announced a standard, non-limited Blu-ray release.

Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol – and previously adapted by Mario Bava as Black Sunday – the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union is set in 19th century Russia, where a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem.

Special Features:

  • Viy the Vampire: An Interview with Richard Stanley

  • The Woods To The Cosmos: John Leman Riley On The History Of Soviet Fantasy And Sci-Fi Film

  • Short Silent Films – Satan Exultant, The Queen of Spades, and The Portrait

Viy is also available on DVD and as a Blu-ray/T-shirt bundle. Head on over to Severin's website or Amazon and pre-order your copy today!
