''A Holy Place'' is often considered as Serbian horror No.2, trailing only ''The She-Butterfly''. Both movies directed Đorđe Kadijević, whose other, less known movies also had horror elements in various extents. Based on Nikolay Gogol's ''Viy'', ''A Holy Place'' has much darker atmosphere (and more violent scenes) than 1967 Soviet movie ''Viy'', but unlikely, remained almost unknown worldwide.
Three young priests are rumbling across the countryside, hoping that someone would give them shelter and food. An old and dirty peasant woman meet their needs. After her sudden death, the three men go further and arrive to the village. The wealthy landlord, whose daughter just passed away, insists that one of the priests read prayers standing next to her coffin, three nights in a row.

I love both the Russian and former Yugoslavian versions of Gogol's story 'Viy', both blow 99% of western gothic horror films out of the cinematic water (and I am from England before anyone accuses me of bias!).

The few films I have seen by Đorđe Kadijević have been absolutely incredible and if you are new to his work, I cannot recommend him enough, Leptrica AKA She-Butterfly is my favourite but everything you can track down by him is more than worth a watch.
