Viy - the remake

The remake of the classic Russian film Viy now has a homepage with a teaser (in Russian) and a very impressive flash in either Russian or English. Unfortunately, as impressive as the flash is, there is absolutely no detail yet and so whether the vampiric elements are to be more apparent in this version is still, as of yet, unknown.

Viy looks interesting, and hopefully a major cinematic release, a la Nightwatch, will make it available to a wider audience who would usually look on a film like this as arthouse and therefore to be avoided at all costs. Of course the selfish gene in me also thinks a major release would make it easier to get to the cinema to see it myself

It does appear that the movie is riding the shirttails of Night Watch's success, hence the homepage being in English and Russian. If it can drum up enough interest then I hope it willrecieve a general cinema release.

For those who haven't seen it, however, I recommend watching the original.
