Whenever we talk about movies, horror is my favourite genre. I love the atmosphere getting spooky and thrilling.
The best part is though, that the movie might not scare you as much at the time when you watch it as it’s recollection does on a sleepless night.
But yes, there is that one thing with horror movies….the clichés~
- You have got that deserted mansion or land, guarded by a scary looking caretaker ( who is scarier than the ghost itself).
- A group of highly adventurous friends ( how can I forget this).
- The TV and the lights go crazy, switching on and off. ( makes me think that the ghost is actually playful)
- Most of the ghosts strictly follow time rules, they will be there at sharp 12 or 3 at night.
But that is not the end! I request you to tell some more such clichés ( in the comments section) and add to the humour.
And then I must talk about the Indian horror show!
Our favourite is the amaavasya ki raat ( no moon night), seriously.
Then we love our female ghosts, “Safed saadi wali aunty” ( the women in a white saree), and she has got this liking to white colour for her skin is pure white ( she can pose in a fair and lovely advertisement) and she has got long black hair.
We always have an ultra spooky tree, but it’s usually the bargad or peepal ka ped ( the banyan or peepal tree), which is haunted by some witch.
Do share your views on horror movies and definitely add
something to this list of clichés.
