Review time here at the ol’ Litterbox once again!! This time out it’s yet another Hindi horror offering, part of the big ol’ pile of Indian DVD’s I received in the mail just recently, “Ek Thi Daayan…”.
Our film’s synopsis reads like this: “Bobo (Emraan Hashmi), is India’s premier stage magician and illusionist. But unknown to even his girlfriend Tamara, Bobo’s life is falling apart. His constant hallucinations leave him with no option but to seek psychiatric help. Going through regression hypnosis, a terrifying story about his childhood surfaces involving a sinister entity called “Daayan” who has not only destroyed his family but also promised to return to destroy him after 20 years. He chooses to ignore it and move on with his life. Just when his career and love life is at full throttle, in enters the irresistibly mysterious Lisa Dutt. After many odd coincidences, Bobo becomes convinced that she is the reincarnation of the Daayan from his past returned to complete her revenge. But is she, really? Or is he just losing his mind?”
Now this one sounds a wee bit more like the kind of film I normally like. Witches… curses… revenge from beyond the grave… and a little romance thrown in to sweeten the taste of this bit of curry flavored horror goodness. 😉 Yep. Neko’s definitely one happy lil’ Catgirl when she gets a DVD like this one for our “Movie Time” cuddle fest…
From what I saw in the Trailers, I’ve had some high expectations for it… and if you want to see if I ended up all happy and content with it’s creepy story goodness then all you have to do o’ Gentle Visitor is “Read On” to find out!!
