A Holy Place

Sveto mesto (A Holy Place, 1990) is based on a literary classic, Nikolai Gogol’s 1835 short story, ‘Viy’. However, Kadijevic uses it only as a starting point for his own explorations into the dark side of eroticism. Gogol’s story deals with Toma, a reluctant theology student who is forced to read the Psalms over an (un)dead girl for three nights in a row. All the while supernatural forces are trying to grab him from the Holy Circle drawn on the church floor. Kadijevic adapts and enriches ‘Viy’ by inventing a new backstory for the witch-girl and her father. The dead girl, Catherine (unwittingly killed in the prologue, while in the shape of a hag), is referred to as a ‘saint’ and her father is a harsh and unpleasant man. Kadijevic departs further from the original story, and introduces an excess of perversity and horror more reminiscent of the Anglo-American gothic than the milder Slavic attempts in a similar mode.

FMovies Review:

A Holy Place – was the biggest surprise of the year 1990 It is a pleasure for me to have a good movie, a few intelligent speakers, and these collective speeches reveal the central idea of the movie. A Holy Place is a long movie, with the space and leisure to expand and explore its themes.

I’m the biggest fan in the world of movies like this I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. I still remember the first time I watched A Holy Place online. It was simply an awesome experience that I remember to this day.

This director is great. With A Holy Place online he seems to be setting himself some kind of a test – how far over the top can he go? I just bought this movie on blu ray and decided to upload full movie A Holy Place here, now you can see this movie online for free.
