Indian cinema has not had a breakthrough in the horror genre. Apart from one or two movies like Tumbbad and Pari, makers are often busy producing movies like Bhoot Part 1: The Haunted Ship and Raaz Reboot. Here comes a movie that looks promising from the trailer. Netflix will release Kaali Khuhi on October 30 - if only Halloween was relevant in India, this would be a perfect date. The footage of the film paints a grim picture. The horrors in Kaali Khuhi will go beyond monstrous creatures and spirit and ghosts. Humans seem to be the worse evil here.

The synopsis of the film reads, "The grimy past of a village in Punjab has come back to haunt its dwellers. Female infanticide and prejudice have taken a toll on the spirit of the village in the form of mysterious deaths of its residents. It is up to Shivangi, a 10-year-old girl, to fight this ominous presence and save her family."

The presence of kids always makes horror movies eerier. It is something about seeing such young souls in peril that make you squirm. Here, a child is a protagonist, so, of course, stakes are high. In just 1 minute 30 seconds, the Kaali Khuhi trailer manages to infuse enough eerieness in the atmosphere, that fans of the horror genre will set a reminder for the film.
