Atmospheric, heavy on mythology and scary as hell.

A spine-chilling horror film that does not rely on jump-scares.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

beautifully shot fairytale gothic... allegorises the corrupting rapacity of colonialism in Imperial India, & looks forward to an independent India who may - or may not - be able to free herself once & for all from the hidden complicities of history.

With a compelling story of greed that spans more than 30 years, a memorable monster and some truly beautiful cinematography, Tumbbad is not to be missed.

This is Indian Folk Horror at its finest.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The story is far more interesting in concept than execution; you can understand why this has been such a long gestating passion project for the director, it's just hard to fathom how the final product feels so formulaic.
