A scene in Soviet cinema that gave goosebumps even to adults

Soviet directors rarely made horror films: this genre was considered to be in bad taste, but from time to time there were scary scenes in the films, as, for example, in “Vie” and “King Lear”. However, there was another scene that frightened the audience even more.

We are talking about an episode of the film “The Headless Horseman”, when a horse appears in the fog, and on it is a headless man. Having galloped slowly, the rider and horse dissolve in the fog.

The scene was accompanied by spectacular music, which made it even more impressive. Also, great credit goes to the operator, who built the right light and found the right angle to achieve the effect of naturalness of what is happening on the screen.

Despite the fact that modern cinema uses even more special effects, viewers admitted that they still experience mystical horror at the sight of a horseman from a Soviet adventure film.
