Finally, I have found a copy of Viy, also known as Forbidden Empire, to watch and possibly enjoy. Steampunkery and magick not unlike that seen in The Golden Compass, though this be set on ‘Earth’ in the victorian age. I’ll report back later tonight on whether or not it was worth the effort. TTFN.

Forlath my friend, happy days are here again. Fan-dam-tabulous news!

And those that don\’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn\’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we\’ll know them by their limping.
