Happy Halloween! Ghost Songs from Hindi Film, Paheli to Bhoot Bangla

You ready to get spooooooooooky?  Well, kind of.  I can’t really think of many super scary Indian films.

This is kind of a ghost story and a ghost song, right?  Certainly the goal is to scare Arjun Rampal.

One of India’s first suspense thrillers!  Mahal, which is kind of Rebecca, but way more twisty.  Anyway, this is Ashok Kumar arriving at his mansion (or “Mahal”) and hearing the supernatural voice of a woman through the building.

Ek Thi Daayan is supposed to be a surprisingly good movie, a horror movie that actually builds characters and suspense and all that.  But I’m not going to see it, because it sounds scary!  Although, on the other hand, Emraan looks really good here, right?

Usually it’s more like Bipasha Basu playing a bitter aging actress/witch trying to destroy the woman who took her career/boyfriend.

Or Bipasha playing a young psychic. (I love this song, by the way.  I don’t even care that it is apparently a blatant rip off of an American song I had never heard of)

Or Bipasha playing a sexy young hotel owner who’s guests are being terrorized by a Creature (thus the title “Creature 3D“).  The point is, if it’s a horror movie, it’s a Bipasha movie!

Unless it is Sunny Leone, her new competition for Scream Queen.  Who was in a song I find legitimately TERRIFYING!  Even though I think it is supposed to be sexy?  But, Gah!  That moment when all the hands are pulling her down!

Oh right, this is a ghost story too!  Doesn’t feel like it, but it is.

Speaking of old houses, the best horror film song of all time, probably.

And finally, my all-time favorite ghost movie song!  Also my all-time favorite religious hymn.  I think of this every time I walk by the Hari Krishna temple on my street.  And try very hard not to start singing it, because if is NOT RESPECTFUL.

    • HA! Yes, let’s count it. either a ghost story, or a terrifying story of the delusional man who is poisoning young minds in obedience to the imaginary voices in his head.
