Kabrastan (1988)



Not every horror movie from India is made by the Ramsay family (although it's a biiig family!) even if it may seem that way sometimes (to Westerners anyway). Here's one you might remember seeing the cover of if you've read Pete Tomb's "Mondo Macabro" book; KABRASTAN directed by Mohan Bhakri. I have this on an unsubbed (and so far un-watched) VCD. Check out this clip. It's without a doubt the best, awesomest and most horrifying horror movie every made. Okay, maybe not at all but it looks fun! LOL (altho Omar Khan, the director of HELL'S GROUND aka Zibahkhana wasn't terribly happy about it and said:

Kabrastan is unforgivably putrid and tedious crap of the worst kind and gives even the gutter level genre of Bollywood Horror a bad name!

  1. "unforgivably putrid"? "tedious crap of the worst kind"? "gives even the gutter level genre of Bollywood Horror a bad name"? Sounds great, sign me up! Wait ... do I own this? Have I seen it? Hmm too much weed ...

  3. Ah, maybe Omar was just having a bad day. The film ain't THAT putrid... It has a great Thriller rip off dance number too. How bad can it be?

  4. Hey Pete. As I just mentioned in the above post it IS in your book, and that cover looks too rad, AND that clip I linked to looked pretty cool (cheap? cheesy? kitschy? SURE, but none of those are negative adjectives in my book, LOL). And if it's got a "great Thriller rip off dance number too" I think I'll move it to the top of the To Watch pile, :o)
