It is said that fact inspires fiction, and the truth of that phrase is more when we talk about horror films. Countless horror writers have been inspired by the old wives tales that Indians have about roads being haunted, buildings been haunted, dead people taking their revenge, and whatnot. Until now, this has only been the spoken word but 101 India is now bringing these tales to the streaming screen.
They are now committed to bringing 101 Indian ghost stories on their YouTube channel, one of them tells the story of the Old Bastora Road, another talks about the ghost at Baga Beach, yet another video tells us about the ghost at Guirim, so on and so forth. There’s also a short film on the ghost of Purulia Road.
All said and done, this is an incredible idea by 101 India and even as we see the videos, we wonder why someone else didn’t do it till now. The films are crisply cut, the camera angles remind us of the cult filmmaking of yore.
