A Cossack is tasked with delivering an imperial letter, and must go through hell itself. Based on the story by Gogol.

The second video above has better colours, but has 8 seconds cut out at the beginning of the credits (you can hear the musical jump) as well as one more cut of maybe 0.3 seconds shortly after the scene in which the Cossack is in the haunted forest, before the fireplace. The second English subtitle file is specifically timed to that version.
