New Delhi: Horror has been one of the most loved and in vogue genre on the big screen as well as on the Indian television.
There was a time when the younger lot of the family used to curl up in their duvet for night time viewing of the ‘Zee Horror Show’ and then dream about those ‘scary’ witches and draculas when the lights went off.
And not to forget the scarier ‘X Zone’ and ‘Aahat’ that managed to leave a lasting impression on the minds of many members of the audience. So much so that in those days, some kids did not even dare to watch more than a few episodes of the TV series.
More than a decade later, shows like ‘Fear Files’ continue to keep the scare fest going with interesting and real life-inspired stories. Although the new prosthetics have replaced the plastered faces which make the ghost appear more convincing, the viewers who have witnessed the less scary version of the shows, do miss the 90s horror at times. No?
