Pari is headlined and produced by Anushka Sharma and follows the story of a girl named Rukshana who has a mysterious past. The film is directed by Prosit Roy and is easily one of the scariest films to come out of Bollywood in recent times. It deals with cults and unlike other flicks, it remains a slow burn that gets under your skin. Do give it a watch if you haven't already.


5. Tumbbad (2018)

Running Time: 1 hr 44 min

IMDB Rating: 8.2/10

Movie Star Cast: Sohum Shah, Jyoti Malshe, Rudra Soni

Director: Rahi Anil Barve

Writer: Mitesh Shah, Adesh Prasad, Rahi Anil Barve, Anand Gandhi

Year of release: 2018

Tumbbad is hands down one of the finest horror films to come out of India in the past few decades. The film perfectly blends a folk tale of greed with a genuinely scary story. Set in pre-independence India, the film follows the story of Vinayak Rao whose greed ultimately engulfs him. Tumbbad was years in the making and it was finally released in 2018 and became a critical and commercial success.

6. Kaal (2005)

Running Time: 2 hr 6 min

IMDB Rating: 4.7/10

Movie Star Cast: Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, Esha Deol, Lara Dutta, Vivek Oberoi

Director: Soham Shah

Year of release: 2005

Kaal was the first horror film under Karan Johar's Dharma Productions banner. It was written and directed by Sohan Shah and starred Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, Esha Deol, Lara Dutta and Vivek Oberoi. An unconventional horror film with a message about forest conservation, Kaal did not do well when it came out. However, its uniqueness and strong message make it different from other films in the genre. It's an unmissable gem if you are a horror fan.

7. Bhoot (2003)

Running Time: 1 hr 53 min

IMDB Rating: 6.4/10

Movie Star Cast: Ajay Devgn, Urmila Matondkar, Nana Patekar, Rekha

Director: Ram Gopal Varma

Writer: Sameer Sharma, Lalit Marathe

Year of release: 2003

Before any of these filmmakers came into the limelight, Ram Gopal Varma was delivering some really fine horror films. Back in 2003, he directed Bhoot which was one of its kind of film in Bollywood. Unlike other horror films that are set in desolate locations, this one was set right in the middle of a Mumbai apartment. Starring Ajay Devgn, Urmila Matondkar, Nana Patekar, Rekha, Tanuja, and Victor Banerjee, the film is genuinely scary and unnerving accompanied by strong performances from its cast. Bhoot has aged like fine wine over the years.
