Mahakaal: Pure Indian Horror

It's time to give new life to the Nightmare on Elm Street series. How; you ask? By releasing the Indian rip-off Mahakaal!

Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to see a movie like this?

I first heard about this movie many years ago. And at first I didn’t believe it, but after some research I was addicted to the concept. You could get it on VHS, under the title TIME OF DEATH, which had no subtitles. But this was hard to find and little use without subtitles.

The movie is supposed to be a pure rip-off of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, copying exact scenes. It also features a musical number every 10 minutes in its 130 minutes run time.

I had almost forgotten about this movie until someone started a thread at AVMANIACS. It got me all psyched again. A couple of cheap Indian DVD releases were mentioned, and I almost bought one. But then on the eve of January 24th someone came with great news (Jack J), that Mondo Macabro, beloved DVD Company, would release MAHAKAAL on DVD.

MAHAKAAL will be a part of the double feature BOLLYWOOD HORROR COLLECTION VOL.3, and is due for release in May. This is the DVD release of the year!
