Queen of Bollywood Horror

When we talk of Horror (in Bollywood), the first thought is Raaz, but now with Bipasha Basu doing films in the so-called “thriller” & “horror” genre, she is the undisputed Queen of Bollywood Horror.
From movies like “Raaz”, “Raaz 3” to “Aatma”, “Alone”, “Rakht”, “Darna Zaroori Hai” etc, you’d think she is doing a fairly good job of either spooking people or getting spooked. She clearly enjoys doing films like these.

But do horror movies spook out the actress in the real life? She claims it does but she nevertheless enjoys watching them, however the need to hold hands, shut her eyes and ask someone else what’s happening on screen is what normally happens while watching one.

I personally enjoy reading/watching horrors or thrillers, be it a book or a movie. So as time goes on, I am increasingly becoming a big fan of Bipasha Basu. I do watch movies only for its entertainment value, I take nothing back from it after its done, other than maybe ideas from it’s storyline – something I could use when I start writing in that genre myself. I’ve always wanted to venture into writing horror/thriller or whatever you call it… I guess I’d need to read and watch more in that genre if I have to have sparks lit up in my mind of a story that creeps not only the reader but for me too (while writing it).

While I work upon a good story with different ideas floating around in my mind, I hope to spook the living daylights out of my readers, soon… how soon that could be, is anyone’s guess.

Just in case you haven’t realized, the picture above has 6 fingers, LOOK AGAIN! You might want to count how many you have.

 

 

Review: ‘Annabelle: Creation’

Annabelle: Creation has all that we are used to seeing, A desolate house, child/children, a mysterious woman behind the curtain, a forbidden door, a scarecrow, a basement, a lift hidden behind a wall, a well, and this one had lots of dolls.

Surpised!? Don’t be.. read on

The Horror (or was it more of mystery/thriller) genre has always intrigued me, be it in the form of books, movies or a TV show. I mean who doesn’t like to enjoy being creeped out from time to time. That said, the Horror/Mystery/Thriller genre should be only shown in 3D and above, it just makes the spooky.. spookier and the creepy.. creepier – that’s all!

Hollywood – Please grow up. How long will you try scaring people with dolls, paranormal activity, Haunted houses and possessed people?

So, I watched the movie Annabelle at the INOX theater earlier today. I wouldn’t say I was scared or even in the least bit moved, but I did smile a lot during the movie (more so by the reactions of the people seated around me-who were all students [surprisingly for a morning show]) and was overall amused by what I saw in the 1h 40m of movie time.

The synopsis of the story which goes like this..
A group of orphaned girls are taken in by a doll maker (Anthony LaPaglia) and his wife (Miranda Otto), who are still grieving the death of their daughter. However, they are soon terrorized by a haunted doll that’s lurking within the couple’s house.

If you think you’ll be spooked out throughout the movie, you’ll be in for a disappointment, simply because it all seems to die down post intermission, which is so not cool. We all know, its all going to end well.. but at least give us some good scary scenes! ‘The doll’ being the main object in the film, doesn’t even look all that pretty. Who keeps a doll like that!?

The next time I decide on going to watch a movie in the horror genre, I need to ask myself.. am I going to expect something new? or the same old thing?

That said.. I might just still go ahead and watch it.

Go and watch the film, if you’re a fan of the Conjuring series.

Welcome to my world! Bitch!

“Welcome to my world! BITCH!” – in the words of Freddy Kruger

If you’ve heard the above line before, you’ll probably know what this post is gonna be about..

Yeah, The Horror genre.

I’ve always wanted to write horror..but somehow I can’t set my mind to it. To create scenes in my head and frame a story is challenging, to say the least. When I think of horror, my first thought goes to ‘Nightmare at Elm Street’ – the movie series. Have you watched it? I personally love watching it over & over again. I watched all 9 of its movies at one stretch – it was awesome. Horror doesn’t scare me, on the contrary it fascinates me watching it coz for someone to think of something like this, one would really need to have a screwed up mind 🙂

If you’ve not watched any of the parts of ‘Nightmare at Elm street’ I suggest you do. It could really make your night 😉 I’ve watched a few horror movies ..but yet to get that spark I’m searching for, to trigger off an idea in my mind

My dad asked me why I was watching horror movies in the Christmas season…and that maybe I should play some Christmas carols instead. So, I’ve decided I’ll watch it at night when he’s asleep 🙂

In case you’re planning to watch the movie, here’s a tip “Whatever you do… don’t fall asleep”  Freddy might just come for you. You’ll understand the meaning of it, once you watch the first part.

Happy viewing 🙂

Btw this is Freddy Kruger for you
