AKSBANDH (2016) Overview


Aksbandh – translation: “Husbandhood” – is a 2016 Pakistani found footage horror film directed by Emran Hussain from a screenplay co-written with Ayaz Samoo. The movie stars Arshad Ali, Saud Imtiaz and Danial Afzal Khan.

Director Emran Hussain is quoted in the Express Tribune: “Horror is a good genre to break into the market. A lot of indie filmmakers are making horror because it doesn’t require a big budget. I loved horror movies as a kid. I grew up watching movies such as The Exorcist, Blair Witch Project and others. Aksbandh neither made a profit nor a loss and it taught me a lot about each stage of filmmaking.”
