The old Soviet Union was a sinister world, a land of secrets, rumours and uncertainty. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, numerous unexplained case files have emerged from deep inside the Soviet archives.

 

These files tell of bizarre phenomenon, monstrous creatures and sinister occurrences.

 

In this feature length drama documentary, I was tasked with investigating these rumours and bringing them to the small screen. From Mountain Wildmen, to terrifying Zombie Dogs, to the mysterious Mountain of the Dead. Eyewitness testimony and dramatic reconstructions bring these extraordinary stories to life. You will enter a world where nothing is quite as it seems.
