Raaz 3 - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A few, predictable, spooky scenes apart, there is nothing new about Vikram Bhatt's latest horror flick, Raaz 3. It's the same old unintentional comedy found in a lazily made horror film.

We have what, one Bhatt film a month, these days? Or at least, that's what it seems like. And almost every other one is horror. So lavish homes, pretty women either scaring or getting scared, savior hero, stage is set.

The good thing is they do a decent job of creeping you out. There is at least one sequence in every film that manages to gross you out or make you edgy. That's good only because that is what they intend to. The flip side is I hate that creepy-crawly feeling that horror films manage to create under your skin. What's in it to look forward to even if it is for one scene?

I guess, then the fortunate bit is most Bhatt films don't manage to hold on to that feeling, which in turn makes it an average horror film. And that's what most of them are. Even if there is an over-powering presence of Bipasha Basu as the devil.

So, here we are, yet another horror flick from the Bhatt group with what looks like very little new to offer. Why would I look forward to flying cockroaches, in 3D at that? creeps yuck uggh Yeah, yeah, even if that is the reaction they are aiming for.
