Viy ★★★

Features some truly captivating set designs and makes use of some very effective camerawork in its most heightened moments. The special effects, while occasionally bordering on cheesy, are charming enough that its not completely distracting and even somewhat add to the overall uncanniness of the film. However, for as intriguing as it can be, especially in its most macabre scenes, I'm not all that compelled by the story as a whole, and it does drag quite a bit even with its incredibly lean runtime.
