Film description

Something very bad is lurking in the dark corners of the old house where the unemployed, helpless Vinu lives with his heavily depressed mother Asha. As the all-encompassing dread slowly seeps into their reality, their lives begin to erode. Can they figure out what the menace is before it’s too late?

Bhoothakaalam is an intelligent psychological horror, well-aware of its quality. Sadasivan daringly adapts a risky script to create a film never before made in Kerala. The director doesn’t resort to tear-jerking formulas or simple generic tricks, instead keeping a strong grip on the narration. As a result, Bhoothakaalam drills into your skull, slowly tightening the screws of encroaching terror all the way till the finale. After the previous Five Flavours hits Tumbbad and Churuli, this is yet another triumph of horror cinema from India.
