Indian lore is the premise for the supernatural chiller Chhorri which will make its debut on Amazon Prime on November 26, 2021. Looking at the trailer, this film blends deep-rooted cultural traditions with seemingly vengeful apparitions which culminate into a mother’s worst nightmare.
Vishal Furia directs. This film is actually a remake of his Marathi-language horror flick, Lapachhapi.
Chhorii marks the first production collaboration between LA-based Crypt TV, founded by Jack Davis and Eli Roth and backed by horror genre heavyweights Blumhouse Productions, with international production house Abundantia Entertainment as part of their exciting partnership.
“Chhorii is going to delight audiences and I’m so excited for it to come to Amazon in November. The goal in Crypt’s partnership with Abundantia is to elevate the horror genre in India and work with the brilliant talent in India to tell globally relevant scary stories and Chhorii does exactly that. The cast and crew on Chhorii did a magnificent job. I know this successful project is the first of many for Crypt and Abundantia.” Jack Davis, CEO of Crypt TV said.

Chhorii tells a haunting tale of a modern, young couple, Sakshi (Nushrratt Bharuccha) and Hemant, based in the heartland of India. Sakshi, who is 8 months pregnant, and Hemant are forced by challenging life circumstances to seek shelter in an isolated house surrounded by large sugarcane fields. The house is inhabited by an old couple who seem to know more than they tell. Unknown to Sakshi, there are mysterious evil forces in the fields who are after her and her unborn child. Even though she tries her best to save her unborn baby and herself, her sanity is affected by the scary sights of three mysterious kids and a charred monster, along with a frightening lullaby playing on an old transistor. Will Sakshi be able to get out of it safely? Will she be able to protect her unborn child?
