During their holiday trip to Tunguska, the good chaps at Extra Normal stumbled upon an abandoned bunker.

Inside, ashtrays crammed with cigarettes, maps covered with meticulous Cyrillic scribbling, an arsenal of PPSH machine guns, silver munitions and, once sharp, now rotten stakes spread over a metal table. All carefully arranged like the still life for a Transilvanian headhunt, lines of sight converging into a vanishing point at the back of the room, a cabinet wherein hid a rusty tin.

Inside, the original film prints for the legendary Grusha.

Cue a bass line full of omen like the hum of a primeval shaman staring into the bloodshot sunset, fear echoing across the aeons.
