The Ghost from Hovrino (Russian: Призрак из Ховрино; Prizrak iz Khovrino) is a 2012 Russian mystery horror, a factual remake of cult American movie The Blair Witch Project, directed by Kirill Khrestinin (he also appears as one of the main characters). A group of four adventuring ghostbusters comes to Khovrino forest near the town of Ryazan to find a mysterious ghost, which inhabitated this forest according to legends.

Note 1: In fact, the Khovrino forest is a fictional location, while the Khovrino is a district of the Moscow, known for the abbandoned Khovrinskaya Hospital, the place of numerous urban legends.

Note 2: Correct translation of the Russian title is The Ghost of the Khovrino's Forest, but the English subtitled version give The Ghost from Hovrino. The same version gave incorrect transliteration of several character's names, so, correct transliterations are given in brackets.

Note 3: This movie was styled as mocumentary, which leads to the moderate quality of film and the effect of trembling camera.

The following weapons were used in the film The Ghost from Hovrino (Prizrak iz Khovrino):


Makarov PM

Anton Vaganov (Anton Demkin) brings the Makarov PM for the protection from the ghost. This pistol also is seen in hands of Kirill Alex (Kirill Khrestinin) and Artem Varanov (Artem Polienko). Considering that the ghost is the immaterial creature, using the firearm against it is a very strange choice. Theoretically, this pistol maybe actually an IZh-79-9T Makarych, the blank and rubber firing civilian version of Makarov PM, but it's only guess.

Makarov PM - 9x18mm Makarov
IZh-79-9T Makarych - 9 mm R.A.
Kirill Alex mockingly holds the PM.
Kirill Alex aims his pistol...
... and fires at the plasic cup during the training shooting.
Artem Varanov fires the pistol at the same target. Note the pistol cycling.
Anton Vaganov fires his PM at the mysterious invisible creature, which just now dragged one of the men into the darkness. Note the empty casing (cyrcled in red).
Anton Vaganov fires again. Note the muzzle flach, pistol cycling...
..and empty casing (cyrcled in red). The pistol seems to run out of ammo after only five shots or possibly jammed.
