Pisaasu – aka Pisasu; பிசாசு and Picācu “Devil” – is a 2014 Indian Tamil supernatural horror feature film written and directed by Myshkin aka Mysskin (Psycho, 2019). The movie stars Naga, Prayaga Martin and Radha Ravi.
A violinist has paranormal experience in his flat after a death of a girl in a hit-and-run accident who he tries to save. Later, he realises that actually the spirit is helping him and he tries to find out who killed the girl…
“It’s not just the performances that hover somewhere between realism and artifice, something more like performance art. Mysskin may be the only filmmaker around whose violence is rendered as some sort of poetry.” Baradwaj Rangan, The Hindu
“Pisaasu is neither the typical horror film that gives you some cheap thrills nor is it a classic horror film that gives your spine a few chills, but it is a heart-warming, emotional take on ghosts that takes its time and packs a punch with its masterful writing that unravels to a wonderful finish.” Piping Hot
Pisasu is currently available to view via Amazon Prime USA and UK.
