What if it's releasing 9 days after the dreaded 13th, Kanchana is still a horror movie. Although spine chilling horror movies are a rarity in Tamil cinema, a few movies in the recent past have been successful in their attempt. Here are a few.

Chandramukhi, remade into as many Indian languages, is one of the few movies that delved into the paranormal side. Needless to say, there was the superstar and the movie was a roaring success.

Eeram, the tastefully made, visually beautifully thriller is the story of an unfortunate woman who dies a horrible death at the hands of her husband and comes back to haunt him. With lesser known actors, the director could pull this one off what with good performances and a decent script.

Directed by Vikram Kumar, Yaavarum Nalam tells the horror tale of a haunted house, without being excessively dramatic. Maddy plays the breadwinner of a family who is responsible for rescuing his family from the hands of horror.

Muni, Kanchana's earlier edition, itself was a well-made horror tale about a family and a haunted house. Thanks to the response it generated, the makers are encouraged to make a sequel - Kanchana.
