Halloween is once again upon us, and like we humans do every year, we try to find things to scare us because it's fun, I guess. We recently found out about something that might just do the trick for you guys this year, especially for you horror flick aficionado-types. 

Back in 1967, the movie Viy came out in theaters in Russia. It's a trip. You can watch the whole thing on YouTube, oddly enough. That, and the novel by Nikolai Gogol, would become the bases of the 2014 movie Viy: Spirits of Evil. Viy: Spirits of Evil are coming to theaters in the Manila on October 22, 2014.

It stars Jason Flemyng (Azazel in X-Men: First Class and Primus in Stardust) and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones). 


I haven't seen it so I don't know what it's about yet. But from what I've read, it's about Viy, a monster responsible for the deaths of many people from a 17th century Ukrainian village. I guess Viy likes to work locally, in a small villages. Viy can also pull a Darth Vader, and kill peeps just by looking at them and sucking out their souls! Jonathan Green, a cartographer, somehow ends up in aforementioned village, and shenanigas ensue.

So, good news, you get to see the following screenies in 3D in theaters in Manila.

Check out the schedules of your favorite cinemas and hunker down for this scarefest. And then, in the comments, tell us what you thought about it!
