Bava-flavored, Hammeresque fun
26 September 2004 | by (Morgantown, WV) – See all my reviews

"VEERANA" is one of the best of the Indian horror films I've managed to find, to date. Like the other Ramsay Brothers productions I've watched, this one has the same Bava-like use of colored gels mixed with atmospheric sets. There's an over-the-top evil Tantric Priest who might have stepped directly out of an Indian horror comic-book, a wonderful Femme Fatale monster who preys upon the predictable weaknesses of men, plenty of fight scenes--of varying qualities, and some genuine demon-possession/monster chills. The song and dance numbers are relatively easy to take, compared to other films in the genre. Overall, this has been my favorite film to show to friends as an introduction to the Indian horror genre since I bought it.
