An official trailer is here for Baba Yaga: Terror of the Forest, the new horror movie from Svyatoslav Podgaevsky (Mermaid: The Lake of Death) and Nathalia Hencker (The Blackout)—and if you have kids at home, you might want to check on them…
In the film, a young family hires a nanny to look after their children. But after gaining the trust of the unsuspecting parents, their new guardian begins exhibiting some alarmingly unnatural behaviour. When his parents don’t believe his claims, son Egor is left to contend with the problem on his own—until one day discovering that the nanny and his young sister have disappeared without a trace.
With his parents now in a trance-like state, with no recollection of ever having had a daughter, Egor becomes convinced that his family has crossed paths with the ancient demon Baba Yaga. Enlisting his friends to save his sister, he must stop the dreaded Baba Yaga… before his parents forget him, too!
Maryana Spivak (Epidemiya), Aleksey Rozin (Leviathan), and Svetlana Ustinova (Hardcore Henry) star in the film, which was inspired by Slavic folklore.
Baba Yaga: Terror of the Forest arrives on digital, DVD, and Blu-ray on September 1st. Check out the creepy trailer below!
