Halloween Special: Scariest Bollywood films ever!

31-10-2014

Its that time of the year when all the ghosts and scary ghouls of the world set out to haunt us poor mere mortals. But just in case you are not feeling particularly scared right now, we bring you a list of Bollywood movies guaranteed to spook you to the core.

 

Raat:

Films Of India

Ram Gopal Verma is widely regarded as the king of quality horror movies in India and you can expect a few titles from this director on our list. But it all began with his first horror venture - Raat. This 1992 flick stars Revathi whose life is turned upside down when a cat gets killed by her father’s car. This spooky flick is packed with chills and is set the tone for RGV movies to follow.

 

1920:

Films Of India

Vikram Bhatt is another director who is obsessed with the occult. 1920 was a surprisingly chilly feature by Bhatt which went on to spawn a sequel too. It is filled with religious fundas and evil spirits but is satisfyingly spooky.

 

Raaz:

Films Of India

Dino Morea and Bipasha Bhatt’s Raaz is often accused of plagiarizing the Hollywood flick what Lies Beneath, but one cannot deny how much fun this spooky thriller is. Not to mention Bipasha Basu who gave many men sleepless nights after this movie.

 

Darna Mana Hai:

Films Of India

RGV broke the mold of horror films in India in 2003 with Darna Mana Hai. Instead of dragging out a lame, done-to-death script into a full fledged feature film, he chose to make an anthology of creepy, weird and often truly terrifying short stories. It is jam packed with amazing performances from a number of stars and though it did not do too well at the box office, it is widely regarded as a horror favourite of our country.

 

Bhoot:

Films Of India

Ram Gopal Verma was at the peak of his form when he made Bhoot, a film so jam-packed with horror cliches that even the Ramsay brothers would cringe. But what works in its favour is the brilliant performances by Urmila Matondkar, Ajay Devgn and Rekha as well as RGV’s fine sense of film-making. All this transforms this run-of-the-mill exorcism tale into a movie which is widely regarded as one of the scariest films Indian cinema has to offer. Its as simple as that, if you haven’t already seen Bhoot, tonight would be the perfect opportunity to let RGV’s masterpiece scare the living daylights out of you.
