Mysterious Dark Horseman slays young girls near the village of Dikanka, and he has already butchered 11 ladies. A scribe from Saint Petersburg has to take charge of the investigation, and the closer he gets to solving the case, the more fits causing macabre visions he has. When he learns the next victim is Liza, his beloved, he questions if he is capable of protecting her and resisting the murderer. Fortunately, he meets somebody who can help him. It is Khoma Brutus, witch hunter, martial artist and philosopher. Together they spend three dreadful nights in an old chapel reading the funeral service for Ulyana, the witch, and calling upon the ghastly evil spirit Viy.
