Horror fans aching for something to spook you to your core, look no further. The makers of Chhorii have dropped an unsettling motion poster for the upcoming horror film, bound to creep out even seasoned horror veterans. Starring Nushrratt Bharuccha, the upcoming movie is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Studio this coming November.
The daunting poster opens with a shot of overcast skies, beckoning the storm to come, and audiences are soothed into a false sense of reverie with a mellow song playing in the background and the sounds of children’s laughter. A seemingly pregnant woman’s form then comes into full view, draped in traditional clothing, her wrinkled hands in full view while her face is overshadowed by her shawl. The laughter then turns into chilling screams, signalling the horror fest in store.
Take a look at the motion poster below.
The upcoming film is a Hindi remake of the Marathi horror movie Lapachhapi, which tells the tale of a pregnant woman who must battle against malevolent forces to protect her unborn child.
Chhorii stars Nushrratt Bharuccha as the lead, who will share the screen with Mita Vashisht, Rajesh Jais and Saurabh Goyal, among others. Announcing the film on her social media handle, Bharuccha had referred to it as ‘shocking’ and ‘scary’.
The film is directed by Vishal Furia, whose debut directorial venture was the original Marathi film. Shot in Madhya Pradesh, Chhorii had wrapped up its shoot the previous year. The film is produced by Vikram Malhotra, Jack Davis and Bhushan Kumar. The production banners include Abundantia Entertainment, T-Series and the US-based Crypt TV, the latter being popular for being involved in most horror-themed content.
