10 Movies and Shows to Watch If You Loved Shaitaan (and Where to Stream Them)

Published on

Supernatural horror in Bollywood has had a mixed track record but new movies like Shaitaan are changing this stereotype. A Hindi remake of an acclaimed Gujarati horror, the movie deals with a family patriarch (Ajay Devgn) who must fight off a mysterious stranger (R Madhavan) after he possesses his daughter (Janki Bodiwala). A critical and commercial success, the 2024 release is now available to stream.

If you enjoyed this nail biting horror, we’ve got you covered with more movies and TV shows that you can watch after Shaitaan and where to stream them online right now. 

1- Vash

Vash is the original Gujarati horror from which Shaitaan was remade. Dealing with the same premise as Shaitaan, Vash boasts a breakout performance by Janki Bodiwala as a girl possessed by a master of dark arts. Her chilling performance was so praiseworthy that she reprised her role in the Hindi remake. 

2- Drishyam

Need any more movies with Ajay Devgn as a protective family man? Drishyam is the best thriller to watch. A remake of the Malayalam movie of the same name, Drishyam deals with a family’s whereabouts after they are involved in an accidental murder. A web of lies and unpredictable plot twists follow. 

3- Asur

The OTT debut of Arshad Warsi, Asur is a supernatural mystery series. The acclaimed streaming title follows forensic experts tracking down fanatic serial killers, some of whom believe in a higher purpose behind their crimes. In this sense, the villains of Asur are as menacing as Vanraj Kashyap, the villain in Shaitaan played by R Madhavan.

4- Phoonk

An exorcism horror directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Phoonk is similar to Shaitaan in terms of its story and atmosphere. Much like Ajay Devgn, Kannada star Sudeep plays an atheist forced to believe in superstitions and black magic after his daughter gets possessed by an evil spirit.

5- Ghost Stories

If you need more variety in your Bollywood horror, watch the Netflix anthology Ghost Stories. Featuring four shades of horror by four leading directors (Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee, Karan Johar), the stories in this Netflix original can be disturbing, haunting, and even darkly funny. 

6- Pari

Anushka Sharma gives a goosebump-inducing performance as a girl with a dark and tortured past in Pari. Set in the gloomy parts of Kolkata, Pari is more disturbing and gut-wrenching than your average Hindi-language horror. This isn’t for the faint hearted!

7- Bulbbul

Shaitaan proved how Bollywood horror can be rich in substance and not mere shock value. Bulbbul is an even more artistic horror that is set in postcolonial Bengal. The Netflix original features a splendid performance by Tripti Dimri as a woman who begins haunting her abusers in an increasingly misogynistic society.

8- Hide and Seek (Lapachhapi)

Shifting to a new home only to encounter paranormal activity. It’s a classic horror trope that is creatively explored in the Marathi horror Lapachhapi. When a married couple moves to a remote village, they unwillingly encounter strange phenomena in a sugarcane field. Much like Shaitaan, it proves how real horror lurks everywhere around us. 

9- Vikram Vedha

While Madhavan is used to play kind-hearted heroes, he can occasionally play morally gray characters. The Tamil cop drama Vikram Vedha is a thrilling watch with a praiseworthy performance by Madhavan as a violent vigilante policeman.

10- 1920

Borrowing heavily from The Exorcist, the first of the 1920 movies deals with the age-old concept of spirit-possession and the religious exorcism that follows. Shaitaan flips the script but 1920 sticks to the classic tricks.
