As corona pushes the evil to the nook, let’s make do with just a few horror tales this Halloween


A haunted house, an invisible presence, a ghostly tree to calling the spirit, Halloween is the time to relive horror stories. If you are not going out partying in your bloody costumes keeping in mind the pandemic, listen to these celebs reliving their spooky stories and also know about their favourite horror films…

The concept

  • Halloween is observed on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Halloween activities include trick-or-treat , attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions and telling scary stories.

And the spirit showed up

Once I along with a few friends decided to call a spirit. We were just experimenting and trying it out for fun, but things really went strange. There was some bizarre clattering of objects and we immediately called it off. I would not recommend anyone to try such things without the supervision of someone who actually knows about the supernatural.

We were under watch

Manmohan Tiwari

Before I got married, I lived in a building in Malad West with a friend. My brother Durgesh, who is an astrologer, visited us once. He was restless and wanted to leave. As we came out of the building, he told us to shift to some other place immediately. It was barely three days that we had moved in. We later learnt that an unnatural death had taken place in that house. We didn’t see anyone but we could feel that there was someone observing us all the time.

I enjoy watching horror movies. The Nun, Conjuring and Siccin are some of the recent movies which I have really enjoyed watching.

Evil that intrigues

Manish Khanna

There are a few spooky films to name but nothing compares to Evil Dead. It really kept me on the edge of the seat throughout.

Paranormal vision

My spooky experience was when I was in class IX. I was in a hostel in Dagshai Army School, Himachal Pradesh. We had to wake up at 4:30 am for our cross-country running practice. On the way, there was a crematorium. Despite being a fitness enthusiast, I gave up the competition because I had some paranormal vision after my first two practice sessions. In fact, it was so spooky and real that I made sure to not walk on that route again.

Ring a bell?

Kamna Pathak

I get spooked every time I watch a horror flick. My favourites are The Ring and Paranormal Activity Part I. Both are amazing.
