Haunted Child is a small-budget, high impact Horror flick. Our Bollywood film reviewer, Faisal Saif provides the low-down on the story, performances, direction and music. Find out if it is one to watch or give a miss.
It feels very sad to witness some films that are good, well made and message oriented. But are released without proper promotions or hammering. Salim Raza’s Haunted Child is one such example.
The best part of this movie (which literally moves you) is it talks about a girl child killing. According to me, from celebrity to the common man, to an entire nation, everyone is talking about ‘Save The Girl Child’ effort. But how many of us are seriously taking any stands?
Haunted Child tells the story of Tanya who hails from a small town. She comes to the city to become a model. She befriends Deepak who is a Fashion Photographer.

|Haunted Child is a Horror film with a strong message. Review Scores by Faisal Saif|
Tanya falls in love with him and she gets pregnant. Deepak’s house owner Mannisha wants adopt Tanya’s child.
Therefore, she takes Tanya to a lonely place where Tanya can easily give birth to a child without any hassle. Tanya delivers baby girl. All hell breaks loose when the newborn girl is killed.
The Girl Child’s soul comes back for her revenge.
There is not much to talk about the performances of actors. All the actors in the film have performed very well. Such films must be judged on the merit of the content. And the content of the film is very strong and powerful.
Salim Raza has written and directed the film. With the given budget, Salim Raza does full justice to the script and churns out a decent Horror flick, which also gives you a hard-hitting social message.
The production value and camera work of the film is very decent. I somehow found the music part very irritating. The background score of the film is good. Especially at creating the chilling atmosphere.
I will definitely recommend Haunted Child for the strong message which hits right inside your heart. Do give this film a view.
