Horror movies are not pretty common in Bangla cinema. Bengali film industry didn’t explore the genre much. Though the filmmakers started experimenting with horror movies in early 50’s, it was never appreciated till directors like Tapan Sinha and Satyajit Ray chose to experiment with the same. Khudhita Pashan and Moniharawent went on to become all-time classics which defined the Bengali horror movies.

After the greatest maestros made a mark with horror films in Bengali, Tarun Majumder’s Kuheli came in which became a box-office hit. Despite its success, no filmmakers showed much interest in directing horror movies in the later years. Ghosts keep on appearing in Bengali cinema as a part of dramedies and satires but horror movies remained neglected for a long time. Some small budget movies did try to scare the audience, but none of them left an impression.

A minor change finally came when Birsa Dasgupta’s Shob Bhooturey grabbed audience’s attention. The film did only average business at the BO, but it managed to revive the Bengali horror films and gave us hope. Kaya: The Mystery Unfolds is the latest addition to the list of Bengali language horror films. Here check out the top Bengali horror movies.
