Bollywood takes on the horror genre this fall in two movies: the seriously intended creature feature HISSS and the comedic IT’S A WONDERFUL AFTERLIFE (pictured left). Keep reading past the jump to find out when U.S. audiences will get to see ’em.
Actually, Fango got the scoop that fans worldwide will be able to see HISSS starting October 15, when it’s currently set to open on the international Bollywood distribution network, including between 50-75 theaters in North America (a number that may expand). Directed by SURVEILLANCE’s Jennifer Lynch, HISSS stars Indian superstar Mallika Sherawat (pictured right) as the human incarnation of the Nagin, a serpentine fertility goddess who sets out for fanged vengeance when her mate is kidnapped by a greedy Am
erican. Look for more HISSS on this site soon and in Fango #298, on sale in October, and see the film’s trailer below and official website here.
In a more lighthearted vein, IT’S A WONDERFUL AFTERLIFE, directed by BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM’s Gurinder Chadha, it’s about a mother who’s desperate to marry off her daughter and murders anyone who refuses the girl—only to be haunted by the deceased’s spirits. We got the word that the film opens October 8 at theaters in the New York City/New Jersey area, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Boston and Detroit. Its trailer can be viewed below and its official website found here.
