From haunted houses, gruesome killings, creepy cats to dramatic exorcism, the film ticks all boxes when it comes to a typical Indian horror flick!

We are sure that you will sleep with lights on in your room after watching this movie.
Another gem from Ram Gopal Varma’s stable; this one starred Urmila Matondkar in a never-seen before avatar. The scene where Urmila’s character Swati gets possessed is hands down, one of the most scariest scenes in Bollywood.
This Dino Morea-Bipasha Basu starrer is inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer’s What Lies Beneath. But, the makers did a good job when it comes to adapting it for the Indian audience. A chilly hill station, a mysterious lady, an affair, some mumbo-jumbo and blockbuster songs. Let’s not forget that Raaz brought back the trend of horror films in Bollywood.
If you like your chills with some dose of ‘ha-ha’ moments then, Rajkummar Rao-Shraddha Kapoor’s Stree is our pick for you! With impressive performances by the cast in this spine-tingling film, this one delivers the laughs and scares on point. No wonder, the film turned out to be a money-spiner at the box office. ‘O Stree (and purush too), yeh film zaroor dekhna’.
This one is for Ramsay Brothers’ fans out there! Long before the Bhatts, we had this trio who dominated the horror universe with their B-grade films which were heavy on horror, gore and sleaze. Purani Haveli is one of them. If you love watching old-school horror then this one is for you!
