The Horror Story Movie Review

'Horror Story' packs in some good scares!
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Horror Story. While Vikram Bhatt’s latest presentation Horror Story is sure as hell not a spookfest to give anyone wet pants, the film does pack a few good hair-raising scares.

For one, the film hinges on an interesting premise. Seven friends are on a night-out for a farewell party for one of them who’s headed abroad. As they wet their whistle, they hear the news of a suicide at Hotel Grandiose, the abandoned, haunted, mysterious hotel none dare enter. The friends decide to visit the hotel to find out the truth. What they find out rather is their worst nightmare coming true.

Once the friends enter the hotel, the doors shut behind them. The lights go off. The phone network goes down. They gun on their torches, and what they witness is shifting shadows, a moving wheelchair, a record that plays on its own, a haunting nursery rhyme ‘Ringa Ring o Roses’ reverberates though the dark corridors and musty halls, and then -- devil be invoked -- the ghost makes its appearance. Trapped inside the hotel with no way out, the friends are pitted against an unseen, untamed evil force out to kill them one by one, but not before scaring the living daylights out of them, and the dear viewer as well.

Interesting? Indeed it is. And director Ayush Raina -- with Vikram Bhatt’s shadow looming over him -- does get a lot right. The screenplay is taut and never goes off onto tangents like songs, or romantic tracks or steamy shower scenes. The ambience is craftily built and anticipation cleverly spurred. Only one wishes the actors had stood up to the task.

Just to roll the credits here, the film has a host of newbies. Leading the brat pack is television actor Karan Kundra. The newcomers include Ravish Desai, Hasan Zaidi, Nishant Malkani, Sheetal Singh, Aparna Bajpai, Radhika Menon and Nandini Vaid. Of them all, Karan Kundra (playing Neil), Radhika Menon (playing Neena) and Nishant Malkani (playing Achint) come good. The rest just about pass muster.

A good soundtrack and background score can go a long way in giving the audience the heebie-jeebies in a horror movie. In Horror Story, there are a few deft touches here and there, but mostly it’s the ear-splitting shriek after stony silence that causes you to splatter your cola.

Horror Story is not without clichés and tropes of its genre and one can’t fathom why a ghost would wreak hell on innocent youngsters out on a harmless adventure. A wishy-washy back story of a mental asylum is proffered. The climax charts a predictable course. In short, Horror Story isn’t really our answer to The Conjuring but it does pack in a few potent scares.

Rating: **1/2
