A List Of Upcoming Films That Explore Horror In A New Light

The horror genre has mostly been about the modest cast

Bollywood Horror is evolving beyond simple tales of ghosts, haunted houses, and possession stories. FIlmmakers are learning to give a spin to the tale. New sub-genres are being created blending horror with comedy, romance, mythology, and more. Horror comedies, Horror films with a social message, and mythological twists to supernatural lore are all plot ideas that fall under the broader genre of horror.

What’s more, A-list stars are joining the horror bandwagon. For a long, the genre was all about B and C-list actors, given the low production costs. The scene briefly changed when Ram Gopal Varma made Bhoot, casting Ajay Devgn, Urmila Matondkar, Fardeen Khan, and Rekha in the film. However, that was a one-off case. The horror genre has mostly been about the modest cast.

The team had started shooting in November 2020 and has been shot all over Himachal Pradesh.

Besides, there have been the likes of the Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmii, a blend of horror and slapstick. The 2018 film Tumbbad created horror using a twist of mythology. Rajkummar Rao’s 2018 blockbuster film “Stree” blended a message about women empowerment with horror and comedy. (IANS/SP)
