The Best Russian Horror Movies

List RulesVote up the scariest Russian horror movies that you would recommend to other horror fans.

They might not be known for films in the genre, but believe it or not there is a nice handful of Russian horror movies that are definitely worth checking out. From old to new scary Russian movies, this list has everything from Night Watch to Unfriended, a 2014 that attempts to scare using social media.
 

You could start working through this list of Russian horror movies with Mister Designer, about a famous artist searching for the secret of eternal life by creating beautiful mannequins. Or, you could check out Dead Daughters, a ghost story following three dead little girls who haunt a person for three days then decide whether they’re a good or a bad. If they decide you’re bad things are not going to be pretty. Then there’s Viy (or Sprit of Evil) in which a priest presides over the wake of a witch…with nothing but his faith to protect him.
 

So bolt the doors and look under the bed, it’s time to work your way through these Russian language horror films. Vote on your favorites and add a movie to the list if it's not already here.
