The Russian myth of Domovoy is that he’s a household spirit that appears under various names and in various places in your house. Domovoy was also the magician of Ivan the Terrible. In America, we’d call it a poltergeist. The movie is about a Russian writer who went to the ruins of Domovoy’s house and drew evil upon himself. This is a strange art house nightmare. You might think it’s a little too far out there. I loved it.
Warning language and moderate violence and freaky as all get out.
