Something really cool

I watched this film at home, when TV3 was showing it during these winter holidays. And I REALLY liked it very much. It's not a usual film. It's a TV series shown in cinemas and, to be honest, that's a great idea. Sitting among all the people who came there to watch it too helps to create a unique atmosphere. All the actors are perfect for the roles, I liked Oleg Menshikov most of all))) I advice you to watch it))

I'm gonna be honest by saying that the subtitles for this film were difficult to understand. However, I watched it anyway, making my own conclusions as to what was going on and I liked it anyway.

I think the film was well made. The costuming and details, while not overly dramatic, were also well suited. From my translation of the film there is an interesting story going on here. I really hope to find better subtitles eventually.

If you enjoy period horror, you may very well like this. I'd tell you to check it out. As I mentioned, the English subtitles I found were awful but if you soldier through or have decent subtitles you'll be glad you checked it out. I'm about to check out the second film after I finish this review. Maybe that will tell you something. I'm curious as to what is going to happen next.

You should watch this movie!

I think, it's very interesting film for viewers, who like mystic. There are a lot of scary and frightening scenes. Film tells as many stories about different people, so the plot is difficult to understand. Protagonist is extremely unpredictable! His acting is very realistic. Other actors are not convincing, in my opinion. All characters are unusual. For example, Gogol, countess Elizabeth, Oksana. CGI and special effects aren't gripping, really bad:( In all, script is fantastic. The end doesn't reveal the mysteries to us, I will wait for the continuation. Who is the same villain horseman?
