Unfairly lumped in with the slasher boom of the ‘80s, Wes Craven’s seminal shocker A Nightmare On Elm Street has more in common with classic ghost stories about a malevolent spirit on a quest for revenge. Craven’s imaginative script gets under your skin, while unwittingly creating a sliver-screen icon in Freddy Krueger. But have you ever thought to yourself, “I like A Nightmare On Elm Street, but I wish it was twice as long and featured musical numbers?” Mahakaal plays out like an Elm Street greatest hits compilation, weaving in elements of mysticism, black magic, and slapstick comedy into this mesmerizing Bollywood production. There truly is nothing else like it.

MAHAKAAL in Hindi with English subtitles.
