Early 18th century. Cartographer Jonathan Green undertakes a scientific voyage from Europe to the East. Having passed through Transylvania and crossed the Carpathian Mountains, he finds himself in a small village lost in impassible woods. Nothing but chance and heavy fog could bring him to this cursed place. People who live here do not resemble any other people which the traveler saw before that. The villagers, having dug a deep moat to fend themselves from the rest of the world, share a naive belief that they could save themselves from evil, failing to understand that evil has made its nest in their souls and is waiting for an opportunity to gush out upon the world.Written by
Despite the fact that this was the highest grossing Russian movie of 2014, it did not get a cinematic release in most other countries. A lawsuit between two of the film's production companies over budget issues caused a significant production delay, after which, a distribution deal for the international market was cancelled. As a result, the movie was released direct-to-DVD in many big markets such as the U.S. and the U.K. See more »
This movie is actually listed in English as, "Forbidden Empire", as indicated on the illustration at the home page here at IMDb, as with any Internet search,*not* "Forbidden Kingdome". See more »
I have seen the original, most enjoyable , not dubbed but with sub-titles, as with a lot of English versions movies not as good as the originals. This is not bad just reminds me of movies like Van Helsing (2004) and other fantasy like movies for people who like these types of movies it's OK.
