A creepy three-part anthology which is actually constructed from a trio of German-produced independent short films that form a narrative around a mysterious cult in 1983 India as a wrap-around story. In the first story "Shakti", a reporter talks to an institutionalized cult survivor who claims to have murdered her boyfriend. In the second story "Devi", a man awakens from a therapy session to discover that he's been beaten senseless and held prisoner by his evil therapist. In the third story "Kali", a faith healer exorcises a spirit from a person only to discover that he has released it into his cellar.Written by
Was put off by the amount of gore but creepy low budget anthology horror.
TEARS OF KALI centers around the fictional India-based Taylor-Erikkson cult group during the 80's. There are some faults with the film that keep it from being truly excellent - but it is an original and ambitious film for what it is. The acting is poor, the cinematography is not upto mark. Only a few of the performances are pretty damn chilling (the "doctor" in the second segment, and the "client" in the third readily come to mind...) and notable. The gore FX are very well done for a low-budget film, with some graphic scenes which reminds us of ol Italian horror movies of the eighties. Flesh ripped clean to the bone...and the blood runs red ...this savage Heart Stopper will grip you...and give you some dark dreams ... Lucio fulci did much better. There are plenty of scenes of genuine atmosphere and tension. The movie is obviously low budget, n some of the acting is pretty lousy, but Tears of Kali is original enough and has plenty of nastiness and gore to make this movie worth a viewing. It is quite creepy and genuinely disturbing. The special effects are not for those with weak stomachs. If you are into splatter and gore, give these young film makers a try.
Somebody shud make a movie on the other cult involving the cult of The Noida serial murders (also Nithari serial murders, Nithari Kand).
