    It's available now...

    https://severin-films.com/shop/the-viy-blu/

    Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol – and previously adapted by Mario Bava as BLACK SUNDAY – the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union remains “genuinely frightening” (1001 Films You Must See Before You Die), “a visual grab bag of terror” (FilmInquiry.com) and “one of the best horror films of all time.” (IndieWire): In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem. Bursting with startling imagery and stunning practical effects by directors Konstantin Yershov and Georgi Kropachyov, this “overlooked classic” (Paste Magazine) has influenced generations of directors for more than half a century and is still unlike any horror movie you’ve ever seen.

    Special Features:

    Viy the Vampire: An Interview with Richard Stanley
    Soviet Cinema: John Leman Riley on the History of Soviet Fantasy and Sci-Fi Film
    Trailer
    English Track
    Exclusive Slipcover

    Some screen caps at the link posted (which will probably disappear after 6/3 when the LE goes OOP).

    Here's the non-slip cover art.

    I have the Ruscico release, which has Russian, English, and French language tracks.

    BY POPULAR DEMAND, BLU-RAY OF VIY TO BE RELEASED WIDE

    Following a long sold-out release with a limited slip cover, Severin Films is bringing Soviet horror masterpiece VIY (1967) into wider circulation on December 10th in a standard amaray case.

    Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol – and previously adapted by Mario Bava as BLACK SUNDAY – the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union remains “genuinely frightening” (1001 Films You Must See Before You Die), “a visual grab bag of terror” (FilmInquiry.com) and “one of the best horror films of all time.” (IndieWire): In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem.
