STOMPBOX: VEERANA – 1980s Bollywood Horror!
NEW RESTORATION! 35TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING!
“Exciting! Action packed! HIGHLY EMOTIONAL DRAMA!” screams the trailer for the wildly unhinged 1988 Bollywood supernatural terror classic VEERANA from the legendary and infamous “Ramsay House of Horrors” – the black magic tale of a landowner’s daughter who is possessed by the spirit of a dead witch and becomes a bloodsucking seductress. On the next moonless night, she will be used in a ritual to raise the evil witch from her tomb. Dancing vampires and monstrous beasts await you!
Absolutely gushing with vampirism, demonism, haunted houses, funky music by disco king Bappi Lahiri, flames, skulls, ass-kicking, human sacrifice, spinning Exorcist heads, cats, romance, sexiness, swordplay, monsters, possession, evil warlocks, and everything else your mind can ooze. Best Letterboxd review: “I had to watch it on my feet I was so over-stimulated.”
The seven Ramsay brothers were India’s biggest producers of horror movies, producing 25 films between 1972 and 1994, the vast majority of them in the horror genre, of which VEERANA is ranked among the very best. This brand new restoration is courtesy of cult film champions Mondo Macabro, who have undertaken a laborious, overdue restoration of the Ramsay catalogue.
This is the first Bollywood film presented by Stompbox since Disco Dancer in 2017 and it’s going to be a wild one! (DAVID BERTRAND)
