Seven Best Tamil Horror Movies in Recent Times:
In this post, we are going to see the seven best Tamil horror movies over the last few years. If we were to consider the all-time best Tamil horror movies in Tamil, then movies like Yaar, Jenma Natchathiram, Uruvam, 13aam Number Veedu, and My Dear Lisa will hold the best places. But here we are going to see the best 7 Tamil horror movies that were released in the last 15 years. Tamil cinema fans do encourage good horror flicks whenever they are released, but we do not see a lot of movies in this genre. Directors should come up with a good storyline of this type without entirely relying on special effects or CGI. Well, we do agree CGI plays a big part in horror movies, but there should be a good story too to draw an audience. Still, few directors came up with a good script and succeeded in this genre with a minimal budget. The horror movies listed here have won over the audience, critics, and box office. Now Let us see the 7 Best Tamil Horror Movies
Kind note to the filmmakers: When venturing into this genre, consider excluding divine elements. The Tamil audience has grown weary of witnessing climactic scenes featuring devotional songs that empower the protagonist to overcome the ultimate challenges posed by demonic forces. We anticipate films of higher quality from you, steering away from the conventional revenge-driven formulas seen in movies like Aranmanai and Kanchana.
Seven Best Tamil Horror Movies:
7) Yaamirukka Bayamey (2014): Newcomer Deekay directed this film. It is a dark, spooky, and spoofy horror flick. You may feel bored with this movie for the first twenty minutes, but the main story starts only after that, with a twist. The story is about a haunted house. The hero of the movie is not sure whether the house is haunted or whether someone plays the drama to fetch the property that he owns. It was a laugh-riot with a handful of characters in the movie. When the audience is about to believe it’s the handiwork of someone, there comes an interval block with a twist. It’s a well-made horror comedy in Kollywood. Honestly, I don’t find any other horror comedy in Tamil well-made like this. We need to appreciate the director for taking a horror comedy flick like this. Watch the trailer below.
6) Eeram (2009): Eeram movie was produced by director Shankar and directed by Arivazhagan Venkatachalam who also penned the screenplay for the movie. It was a revenge story, but not a usual revenge story; here, Ghost takes “water” as a medium for revenge. And a beautiful love is embedded in this ghost revenge story. Aadhi portrays a police inspector tasked with probing the murder of his former lover. It’s only at the interval point that the director reveals the supernatural aspect, surprising the audience, who initially perceived it as a crime thriller. Major credit goes to the director for maintaining narrative focus without incorporating unnecessary masala elements or unwanted songs. Take a look at the trailer below.
