Horror never fails to enthrall audiences and film-makers alike and from multiple adaptations of Wilkie Collins’s 1860 story, 'The Woman in White in films like 'Woh Kaun Thi', 'Bees Saal Baad' and the Ramsey fear fests, the horror genre has grown to include zombies, supernatural elements, meta humour,  romance, crime, and even dystopian and investigative thrillers. The rise of OTT platforms has also popularised long-format shows in many languages with horror at their core.
