1. Purani Haveli (1989)

The premise of the film was simple. A young couple travelling across a forest comes across a mansion and decides to spend the night there. Don’t ask why. They conveniently decided to sleep outside the mansion. Not inside, but outside. And that’s when the hairiest monster known to mankind attacks them and as expected, kills them. The rest of the story is about how they hunt down the monster who lives in a bigger house than you can ever afford. But that opening sequence alone should give you the motivation to watch it.

2. Purana Mandir (1984)

It’s not my fault everything that they do turns out to be ‘purana’. The film deals with a devil worshiper called Samri who was beheaded by a king 200 years back. The king, for some strange, kinky reason, keeps his head in a box with him. Now, 200 years later, guess who comes back to life? It’s Samri!

3. Veerana (1988)

Okay, this, arguably, was one of Ramsay brothers’ scarier movies. Of course, the soundtrack helped considering it was given by none other than Bappi Lahiri. The film’s premise was simple. A girl, possessed by an evil spirit makes it her life’s mission to seduce and kill men.
