The Radhika Apte starrer Ghoul, when it landed on Netflix last year, became a benchmark for Bollywood horror series. Netflix must now be looking at 2019 with nostalgia. That was the year when Netflix brought out series like Sacred Games, Ghoul and well, continued with Stranger Things. Ghoul was ahead of its time and was possibly the first web series to talk about an apocalyptic India and minority oppression and supernatural horror, all in four quick episodes.
Radhika Apte starred as a low-level security guard who has to battle not just zombies and an outbreak but also religious persecution. The brilliant web series, the brainchild of Patrick Graham is something so eerily close to today, it becomes a must-watch. And it’s not just me who’s saying this, even Blood Disgusting agrees. Ghoul becomes the only Indian web series to feature in a list of binge-watch on the website. The list contains classics like Supernatural and bizarre ones like Marianne.
Its not like they made a list of only one or two streaming channels. No, the writers over at Bloody Disgusting took a lot of time out and have created a list comprising of all the stuff available on Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, Tubi, the works. The Bollywood horror web series has a cult following among Bollywood horror fans. Critics consider it to be one of the finest web series to land on Netflix, horror or otherwise. Since its a Netflix Original, it will always be available on the streaming channel, but I suggest you catch it right now.

Nicole Kidman has been out of the limelight for a long, long time. One of her horror movies, and most successful ones, is now up for a remake – The Others. The Others has a simple story, which is a classic horror one. In the current scenario, bloggers will work out a frenzy about the self-isolation concept that the movie explored. A mother decides to self-isolate her two kids because they have a rare kind of disease. Audiences and critics loved the twist at the end. It was something novel and gusty at that time. The horror movie was a critical hit. It enjoys a cult following. Alejandro Amenabar directed the original.
The Nicole Kidman starrer is an important movie for Bollywood horror movie fans as well. There was this Amitabh Bachchan – Dharmendra – Dimple Kapadia movie, Hum Kaun Hain, with a plot very similar to the Nicole Kidman starrer. This was the first Bollywood horror movie that Amitabh Bachchan was part of. This movie released way before the Darna and the Bhootnath franchise.
The Others is one of the many horror movies that are up for a remake. With the entire Hollywood industry vying for one remake after the other, I wonder how many more retro, classic and even modern horror movies are up for a remake. There’s no word whether Nicole Kidman will do a cameo this time around.

Godzilla is one of the world’s most endearing characters. He has starred in more than a dozen South Asian creature horror movies. Hollywood has given its own spin to the legendary characters. Newer movies about the character always on the anvil – whether this side of the ocean or that. Now, Legendary Pictures is giving some respite to an entire civilization that’s under lockdown. it’s offering fans a chance to watch three creature horror movies via Fanflix. The movies are:
That’s the whole Monsterverse out there, so I think people will have fun watching these three movies at one go. Fanflix has said on its site that the viewing opportunity is available only in the US. I checked over at YouTube and one can buy or rent the creature horror movies at a price that’s lower than the US price.
The movies are an important part of pop culture and the phenomenon of Hollywood movies being bigger and better than any other industry. The first Hollywood movie featuring the character was the Roland Emmerich directorial Godzilla, in 1998. Since then, Legendary Pictures has taken over the Hollywood part of the franchise and made two other movies with Godzilla Vs. Kong coming up sometime in 2020.

The Candyman franchise has decided that it cannot fight the Coronavirus. The movie will now release in September 2020, instead of June 2020. The exact date for the release is September 25. The horror movie logline tells us that there’s no chance of anyone from the 1992 movie playing a major role. However, but the seduction of cameos and afterthoughts cannot be left off the hook (see what I did there?)
In Candyman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II plays Anthony McCoy a visual artist who shifts into Chicago’s Cabrini Green area, with girlfriend Brianna Cartwright (Teyona Parris). While they don’t know what the issue, Anthony finds out about from a man who’s lived in Cabrini for far too long. When McCoy finds out about the legend, he decides to depict it with his artwork.
Netflix recently revealed the delightful little horror movie set in the art world, Velvet Buzzsaw. That movie was lusciously violent and classy. We can’t wait for another horror movie set in the world of art.
The original Candyman that hit theaters in 1992 started off describing the legend of the Candyman, the evil power that comes to Earth if someone calls out his name five times. The second movie hit theaters in 1995 and the third movie released in 1999. So, this makes it the fourth movie in the franchise,

We have a trailer for Train to Busan 2. Train to Busan was a sleeper hit, western audiences’ introduction to Korean horror. Post that, Parasite took the story far, far ahead, winning four Oscar Awards in the process. Now there’s a sequel to the Korean horror movie, Train to Busan. The name’s Peninsula and the trailer for the Hollywood movie hit YouTube. Train to Busan 2 markedly different from the original. The trailer shows us that the movie’s premise is all over planet Apocalypse, i.e, Earth. The first movie’s entire set up was in a train, and that gave the story writers to create an intense and agoraphobic story. We shall see how the second movie fares.
The Train to Busan 2 trailer doesn’t have any actors from the previous movie. So, this makes it a stand-alone adventure and not a continuation of the original. Also, the trailer hints at the movie having different fight/escape sequences. One of them is a legit barn fight, while another is about zombies attacking a quarantined facility.
Korean and Asian films are popular for their action sequences. The original movie had several action sequences, turning out to be a fan favorite among the audiences. I am sure that the audiences are looking for another bang fest, whenever this one releases.

Shaitani Ilaaka is a Bollywood horror movie from the Ramsay stable that released in 1990. The movie stars Deepak Parashar, Shripada, Satish Shah, Kanwaljeet, Ranjeet and others. This is one of the few horror movies and Ramsay movies that star Ranjeet. Shaitani Ilaaka has is only slightly different from the staple Ramsay fare of ancient demons and damsels in distress. Here’s the IHC review of the 1990 release, Shaitani Ilaaka.
A young woman, Anju (Sriprada). has nightmares every full moon night. We find out that her governess, Shalaka (Neelam Mehra) is actually a devil’s devotee and has an ax to grind with Anju’s family. Basically, she is a witch and a worshipper of an ancient demon. Anju’s family had defeated that demon and held him in a temple, trapped under the power of a spiritual charm.
Since then, she has decided to sacrifice virgin women to the demonic entity that she prays to until he is strong enough to break the charm. Her final idea is to sacrifice Anju’s life to the demon, before her wedding. However, Anju’s fiance (Deepak Parashar) and his friends decide to fight against the demon.
A tantric tells them to take Anju to a temple, where the demon will be powerless. However, Lalbai is successful in reviving the devil. The Tantrik now tells Anju and Deepak and they should marry and consummate their marriage, as that’s the only way they can defeat the demon.
Shaitaani Ilaaka starts off with a screenplay that’s distinctly different than the typical Bollywood horror movie trope. For example, for the larger part of the movie, the deaths don’t happen because of the demon.
Director Kiran Ramsay thinks up of creative ways to kill the victims. One of them dies at his own hand – literally. Even the spooky scenes initially are not of a demon chasing the girl, she has nightmares about someone doing some spooky prayers.
It’s the nineties, and the effects in Shaitani Ilaaka are more than passable. There are some grotesque makeup scenes. By the end, Shaitaani Ilaaka turns out to be a typical slasher fare that Bollywood churned out back in the nineties.
Neelam Mehra amps up her performance and her character comes across as someone who’s genuinely angry about what’s happened to her and wants to exact revenge. Mehra has performed in other horror projects like the classic Bollywood horror movie, Purana Mandir.
There’s not much to say about the performances here, apart from the over the top that Neelam Mehra gives. Others, like Sripada, Deepak Parashar and Surendra Pal sleepwalk through the roles – characters that they have played several times. All three are Bollywood horror movies and tv series alums, so they know what they are doing.
Shaitani Ilaaka has aged well, but Bollywood horror fans will find the story similar to several other Ramsay horror movies. It’s a good watch for someone who’s looking to understand Bollywood horror movies, but doesn’t hold anything special for the general horror audience who have weaned on other Bollywood horror movies.
