Directed by Deekay, this Krishna starrer revolves around a haunted mansion and a group of youngsters. It is a classic horror comedy in which the characters are haunted by ghosts they are unaware of.

This GV Prakash starrer revolves around three friends who, due to their personal failures, decide to end their lives but later realise that the place they are at is haunted.
