My Viy: The Spirit of Evil Movie Review

While religion is something most people clung into for some things they don’t know and cannot control. There is always a logical and scientific explanation to everything.

Viy: The Spirit of Evil movie review
I attended the advanced special screening of Viy: The Spirit of Evil in hopes that I will jump out of my seat and scream at the top of my lungs but surprisingly it did not.

It was not a bad thing though, the movie was very interesting that even though I had those moments I wanted to leave, I just can’t because I want to understand what was going on and find out what just happened, what was happening and why it happened.

While it was not that kind of shock and scare horror movie I am used to,  Viy: The Spirit of Evil  was a kind of a horrifying movie with real life fears and evils. The kind of evil that lurks in the real world that we are all prone to face from  day to day.

As for cinematography, the movie was well made.  It is the original movie shown in Russia and was dubbed in English. For someone who has seen it all this movie kinda made me feel like watching those Jackie Chan movies before like Drunker Master because of the dubbing but it was well-dubbed I must say.

It is best seen in 3D as those flying things will somehow get you jolt-off your seat thinking those things will hit you in the face. The graphic effects were awesome, fantastic and seamless, I love it! it will make you squirm it is mind-blowing!
