[Mikhael Agafonov checks in with a report about Moscow's second annual horror award show.]
Russia has yet to produce a remarkable horror movie (although some may argue Timur Bekmambetov’s Night Watch earns the title), but it’s certainly no stranger when it comes to paying respect to the genre. Horror movies usually earn good box office returns in Russia, so it’s only natural that 2011 saw the organization of Moscow’s first horror award show. This January award show (now titled Kaplya, which means ‘The Blob’) returned for its second edition with more nominations, more attractions and more international guests, despite the freezing weather.
