"16.7. Oikeasti mielenkiintoisesta elokuvanteosta puheenollen, neuvostoliittolaista satiirista kauhua edustava Viy pääsee suhteellisen suppealla sisällöllään erittäin pitkälle omintakeisen antinsa ansiosta. Nuorta munkkia pyöritetään mielivaltaisesti muhkeilla viiksillä varustetun herrasmiespooppoon toimesta, ja hänet pakotetaan rukoilemaan kolme kohtalokasta yötä tappamansa noidan hauta-arkun vieressä.
