Things got seriously spooky as ‘Choti Maayi’, the paranormal character from the hotly anticipated original horror, Chhorii, lurked in the shadows of the busy Mumbai night in a promo video released by Prime Video. Sneaking up on unaware members of the public, the spooky women dressed in a burnt red dress popped up across the city, walking along the road, entering a department store, sneaking across a jogging track and even sitting in an auto-rickshaw.
The hilarious video saw people screaming in shock and was released by Prime Video on their YouTube channel and social media platforms ahead of the global premiere of their original paranormal thriller, Chhorii, which follows the story of a young couple forced to flee their city home and seek shelter in a house within a haunted sugarcane field. Soon, the couple realise that the shelter they once sought for refuge from danger is in fact the very location for a seriously sinister paranormal threat, known as ‘Choti Maayi’. The housewife, eight months pregnant, must now fight to save her unborn baby from the spirits out to snatch her away.
Excitement is now at boiling point with just a few days left until the premiere, with this video adding to the anticipation caused by the teaser and official trailer, which you can watch here.
Chhorii is directed by the very talented Vishal Furia and marks first production collaboration between LA based Crypt TV, founded by Jack Davis and Eli Roth and backed by horror genre heavyweights Blumhouse Productions, with Abundantia Entertainment. Crypt TV are known for showcasing a new calibre of scary with shows like The Look-See, The Birch, Sunny Family Cult, and The Thing in the Apartment. It is a remake of the Marathi film Lapachhapi, and features Nushrratt Bharuccha in the lead role, alongside Mita Vashisht, Rajesh Jais, Saurabh Goyal, and Yaanea Bharadwaj. Chhorii is slated to stream on 26th November 2021, on Amazon Prime Video across 240 countries and territories worldwide
