Each time I walk into a hall to watch a horror movie with or without expectations, I mostly end up disappointed; not because it fails to scare me but I often find myself asking a question. Is it so difficult to make a good horror movie? Perhaps, it must be.
‘1920 London’ is the third installment to Director Vikram Bhatt’s successful movie; if you ask me, ‘1920’ is among the best of the very few good horror movies. Scenes weren’t really ripped off and though it wasn’t completely original, it worked! A well-written film well-directed which managed to give you the creeps. Bhatt is surely good at his craft at least, when he attempts horror. So, probably this one (and the second part too) might have been a tad better if he just not wrote the story but also directed it.
‘1920 London’ isn’t just bad horror. It’s a pathetic movie. Terribly misdirected by Tinu Suresh Desai with equally poor performances, it also has some tuneless songs, a laughable background score and clumsy dialogues. The twist in the plot is so obvious and the back-story isn’t emotional but hilarious, quite like the few scenes which might have been meant to spook you.
‘Sanam Re’ is the worst I have seen this year so far. ‘1920 London’ is no better.
