The Widow Synopsis:
In a densely forested area north of St. Petersburg, people have been going missing for three decades. Cops found very few corpses. And the few they did recover were naked. On October 14, 2017, a team of volunteers went out into the woods in search of a missing teenager. Soon, they lost all communications. Locals believe the same dark spirit took them like the others… they call it the Limping Widow. Based on true accounts from the region, this gripping film is a white-knuckle ride from beginning to end!

Annually, more than 300 people disappear in the forests to the north of the St. Petersburg region. Cops found missing people’s bodies in the middle of the forest completely naked, without any sign of violent death.

Real events centering on search-and-rescue teams in the forests near St. Petersburg inspired the film. Those mysterious, swampy forests of the St. Petersburg region were also the main site for the film.

The film crew spent several months isolated from civilization. Raw autumn with its north winds, cold and rain — is only a small part of what the expedition members had to deal with every day. It’s worth noting that the making of the film started on October 14, 2018, on the Holy Virgin’s Day when, according to folklore, the forest also turns into a deadly place.

Ivan Minin directed The Widow from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ivan Kapitonov, Natalia Dubovaia, and also Svyatoslav Podgaevsky. Viktotiya Potemina stars with Anastasiya Gribova, and also Margarita Bychkova.
