These Horror Fantasy Films Will Send A Chill Down Your Spine!

Horror is a genre that has such a broad spectrum that it can be moulded in numerous ways, and when you combine the genre fantasy with it, the range increases to another level.

Well, the good news is that these Indian films have done justice to the genre and are sure to keep you glued to your screen (Jump scares guaranteed!)

Here are the 4 best Indian horror fantasy films that will keep you at the edge of your seat:


No word won't ever be able to describe the masterpiece created by Anand Gandhi and Rahi Anil Barve. They say the best horror film is one that plays with your mind, and Tumbbad is the perfect example of a movie playing with your mind long after it has ended. The film revolves around Hastar, a monster who is never to be worshipped and a greedy family after the monster's cursed wealth. What follows will mend your mind like anything!

The film starring Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee, Pari is refreshingly different from typical Bollywood horror flicks. Unlike other horror films, Pari slowly builds the narrative and grasps you tightly until you can't breathe (not literally!) The storyline revolves around Arnab, who rescues a traumatized Ruksana and later discover all her secrets. If the movie's storyline is not enough to scare you, Anushka's spooky character will!

Directed by Anvita Dutt Guptan, Bulbul follows the story of a child bride named Bulbul who grows up to rule over a mansion and hides her traumatic past. The film stands true to the statement - 'A beautiful woman is dangerous'. The film's storyline is clearly established, but it is unpredictable at the same time. Signifying the red colour as the colour of revenge, Bulbul is a classic mix of pre-renaissance Bengal and horror gothic making for gripping viewing.
