Bollywood has tried every type of movies over the past few decades. From romantic love stories and action thrillers to serious and horror movies, there is no single genre left where Bollywood has not tried its hands. Today, we are going to have a look at the list of scariest movies that Bollywood has ever produced. So, let’s get started.
Let’s Take A Look At 5 Scariest Bollywood Horror Movies of All Time
1. Bees Saal Baad
This psychological thriller starring Biswajit and Waheeda Rehman was the highest grossing film of 1962. Based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘The Hound of Baskervilles’, Bees Saal Baad is a movie that breaks all barriers in terms of the screenplay at that time in Bollywood. Lata Mangeshkar’s ‘Kahin Deep Jale’ is so spooky that even if you see it today, it’s going to give you chills down your spines.
2. Vastu Shastra
Directed by Saurabh Narang, it is a 2004 horror movie starring Sushmita Sen and J.D Chakravarthy. Nothing gets scarier when a kid starts making imaginary friends and start speaking to the dead. A haunted house jump scares a creepy banyan tree. This movie in such a restricted space and brilliant acting leaves you completely clueless and you can’t guess what’s going to happen next. This is definitely a must watch for all the horror movie lovers.
3. Darna Mana Hai
It is a 2003 horror movie released with a huge ensemble cast. A movie which is based on narrations of the supernatural occurrences and the existence of spirits by friends around a campfire. It is a movie which will leave you to shut your eyes at multiple points throughout the movie. Rajpal Yadav’s Apple, Vivek Oberoi and Nana Patekar’s car ride, no smoking story with Saif Ali Khan are just some of the six stories that are showcased in the movie which will leave you spooked. I wonder why Ram Gopal Varma can’t produce such gems all the time.
A movie directed in 2002 by Vikram Bhatt and starring Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea was another benchmark in Bollywood horror movies. It was the second highest grossing film in 2002 after Devdas and all with good reasons. The film is an unofficial adaptation of ‘What Lies Beneath’. The movie contains a scary house in Ooty, screams from the forest and a dark and mysterious past. This movie literally has all the aspects of a perfect horror movie.
A 2003 movie starring Ajay Devgan and Urmila Matondkar definitely has to be one of the scariest Bollywood movies ever. With one of the most impressive performances on-screen, Urmila Matondkar could literally scare the crap out of you. A couple moving into a high-rise apartment left by a woman who committed suicide and killed her own son. This movie has a lot that horror thriller lovers want. Realizing loopholes to the actual death of the woman, an attempt to carry out an exorcism was there. This movie will definitely give you a sleepless night.
