Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In what nation is the television series "Cracow Monsters" set (in which nation it was also filmed)?

Answer: Poland

The principal setting of "Cracow Monsters" is a medical school at a university in Kraków, Poland. The production company, Telemark, shot all of the scenes in Poland. The script by Anna Sienska, Gaja Grzegorzewska, and Magdalena Lankosz was written in Polish. The programme was shot in the Polish language and then dubbed in English for distribution by Netflix.
2. The story line of "Cracow Monsters" was based by the scriptwriters on what?

Answer: Slavic folklore

Several Slavic folk tales involving monsters are blended in this 21st century script. Kraków, the former capital of Poland, is an ancient city which has had time to accumulate its ghosts. The ancient proto-Slavic deities and demons are much less well known than those in Greek, Roman and Scandinavian mythology.

The television series adopts the legend of Triglav, a three-headed god who created the world. The god's heads were white (symbolizing beauty and fire), black (symbolizing chaos and despair) and red (symbolizing harmony between good and evil).
3. What was the specialty of Professor Jan Zawadzki?

Answer: pathology

Doctor Zawadzki, played by Andrzej Chyra, is a medical doctor specializing in pathology. He is identified as the only Polish member of the International Society of Pathology. He teaches classes in Kraków and at the State University of Texas, where he is a visiting faculty member. He also leads a small community of medical students who do research together under his tutelage.
4. Of the eight students living together and studying with Doctor Zawadzki, what was special about Lucjan "Lucky" Szczesny?

Answer: he is a graduate teaching assistant

Lucjan "Lucky" Szczesny, played by Stanislaw Linowski, was Doctor Zawadski's teaching assistant. His role is evident in that he graded the examination papers for entrance into the forensic science research community. Alex doodled on hers, catching the Professor's eye.Lucky takes leadership in the group and is often tasked with special assignments by Doctor Zawadski.
5. Which of the following is NOT true of Aleksandra "Alex" Walas in this story?

Answer: She is possessed and controlled by the deity Pivka.

Aleksandra "Alex" Walas, played by Barbara Liberek, is the protagonist/heroine of "Cracow Monsters." Her university roommate diagnoses Alex as schizophrenic and urges her to get into therapy. Her grandmother is alive and provides her with information about her birth and of how her mother felt pursued by a demonic power.

The shining white "person" who appears and protects Alex from time to time is her guardian angel. While Lucky and Alex are in a bar, the minor Slavic deity Pivka, who usually moves people to become thoroughly intoxicated, warns them off from drinking a beverage poisoned by demons.
6. The Boy Rafel seeks to find and kill Alex. To aid him, he creates two Hollowshees to pursue and capture her. What are Hollowshees?

Answer: naked female demons who live in lakes

Identical twin Hollowshees crawl naked out of black water. One goes to the club where Alex and Lucky are having a drink and tries to put a potion in their drinks. The other goes to the research community's dorm and possesses Gigi, played by Daniel Namiotko, by having sex with him repeatedly. The group captures this second demon, exorcizes Gigi, and releases the Hollowshee in hopes of following her back to the Boy. They fail.
7. Doctor Zawadski has a wife and son. In what way do they compromise his resolve to combat the evil represented by the Boy Rafel?

Answer: He makes a deal with the Boy to save his son.

The Professor's son Feliks is ill and in hospital. He suffers from an unknown and incurable ailment which is on the verge of killing him. The Professor makes a bargain with the possessed Boy Rafel to exchange a newborn baby, stolen from the hospital, in return for the life of his son. He delivers the baby, knowing that it will be sacrificed.
8. Alas, poor Robert! How did he fall under the influence of the possessed Boy?

Answer: He dug up a statue of Triglav.

Robert, played by Wojciech Brzezinski , is an archaeologist who discovers a statue of Triglav on a dig. He takes the statue home with him. It exudes black water which has evil magical power. It leads him to the mortuary where the body of the Boy Rafel is reposed. The Boy awakens and begins to command Robert, who thereafter calls him Master.
9. When Alex flees the community, the Professor is prevented from finding her. When she is attacked by the Winter Spas, she is saved. When she is trapped in the underworld, she escapes. Who helps her?

Answer: her guardian angel

Alex's guardian angel is a bright-shining light-emitting creature who is always nearby. The Professor's search for her is derailed by this guardian angel. The encounter with the Winter Spas is averted by the intervention of her guardian angel. After she meets her mother's spirit in the underworld, she is guided out by her guardian angel.
10. In the end, Alex saves Kraków (and the world) by defeating Hvor and burning the Triglav statue. What will happen to Alex as a result?

Answer: She is told she will pay.

The curse on Kraków was invoked by Hvor, god of the underworld. The curse could be broken by capturing Hvor. He had to be captured rather than killed because it is a sin to kill a god, no matter how evil that god may be. Robert escapes from the Boy and brings the statue of Triglav to Alex. At the very hour when Triglav was to appear (5 January 2022 at nine pm.), she killed Hvor and burnt the statue. Back at medical school, an entity appears and tells her that, because she broke an eternal law by killing a god, she would have to pay.
