Veerana (The Wilderness)

de Tulsi i Shyam Ramsay

Synopsis

A bloodcurdling witch who has been terrorizing a small village is finally executed. Her diabolical followers manage to make her spirit possess the village chief’s daughter until the witch is completely reincarnated. A complicated birth due to a combination of eroticism and horror that wasn’t at all well-considered by the prudish censorship of the time, Veerana situated the Ramsay factory at the summit of Indian horror movies once again and today is still capable of seducing the spectator with its imaginative fusion of Western horror and local exoticism.

Director
