A film, I'm 95% sure was Russian. I watched it within the last two years and I got the impression it was not very old, say post-2015. Filmed in colour. The scene I remember was a raggedy creature that was returning to a peasant farm across the farmyard. It was a collection of sticks, bones, and tools and looked like a spoked wheel without a rim, but with an animal skull for a head. About 1m diameter, and moved by rolling along on the spokes. It was ill, or broken, and entered the farmhouse, where the family were very blasé about the whole thing - because they created, and animated, these creatures using some kind of folk-magic. The shot of it crossing the yard was very creepy. Anybody recognise the film (or possibly TV series)? I thought maybe it was "Gogol", but a google search doesn't throw up a mention of the creature, and I don't want to watch the whole series again.

  • Intriguing. I wonder if it has something to do with communism?

    Something like Viy 3d youtube.com/watch?v=CPcPtizGymc ? Mar 26, 2021 at 20:35
  • Yes. Similar setting to Viy/Gogol. But I don't think it's that particular film/series.
