Thread: US Remake of Russian "Queen of Spades"

    US Remake of Russian "Queen of Spades"

    It looks like someone called Patrick White is remaking Svyatoslav Podgaevskiy's "Queen of Spades: The Dark Rite," which is an excellent modern Russian horror film. I also liked Podgaevskiy's "Mermaid" a lot and "Bride" was fine. The good news is that Podgaevskiy's "Baba Yaga" has been recently released on blu-ray and "The Widow," which he produced, is up for preorder at Amazon.

    Oof! Baba Yaga is a let down. Lots of horror tropes, but no horror. I watched it because I'm interested in the director, but I can't recommend it.

    I began watching on Amazon Prime Video what I thought was QUEEN OF SPADES: THE DARK RITE, at least that was how it was advertised. As it turned out, it was a 2016 QUEEN OF SPADES, also made in Russia, about a staging of the Tchaikovsky opera plagued by the cunning manipulation of the production's diva. (Wasn't bad, actually.) It appears that the mistake is only in the listing I saw through the Fire TV app, because the one on Amazon's website is correct.
    VHS will never die!
