•Book: Ч(и)халка – “Ch(i)khalka”, or “Ch(i)’halka” – The title means something like “The Sneezer”, or “The One Who Sneezes”, in the East Slavic languages.

•Author: Not stated (The cover of the book just shows a spiral).

•Contents: It’s a book of divination, or fortune-telling, that predicts the future of the persons based in the day of the week and in the hour in that they sneezed.

•Work: It appears in the Ukrainian movie “Stranger” (Storonniy/Сторонній – 2019).

It was Joseph Morales (head of the website “The Cthulhu Files” – that told me about the existence of this movie.

Also, at the 19 minutes of the movie, the protagonist finds the Necronomicon in the library.
