Best of Tamil Horror Movies That Will Give You Sleepless Nights

A horror movie fan or not, the thrill in watching them is not less than an adventure for everyone. Faking bravado while watching them and then hiding under the sheets at night, having nightmares about ghosts and vampires, and wishing you had not watched the movie but still watching another. All of this is an endless cycle and if you are that pseudo-brave person, you have come to the right place.

From the classic Haunted houses to baby spirits and a brush of light-hearted comedy, here are the Tamil horror flicks that have scared a lot of us. Watch them at your own risk.


Starring Sai Pallavi, Naga Shaurya, and baby Veronica Arora in the lead roles, Diya is an emotional horror thriller. It is a film that gives out a strong social message about anti-abortion as it stands for the rights of every soul, to live in this world. The core premise of the film is innovative and the director Vijay manages to drive the point home while the actors are the perfect cherry on the top.


This Tamannah Bhatia movie is a horror comedy that will leave you in splits, all the while screaming out of fear. Directed by Rohin Venkatesan, the movie is a laughing riot all the way and has an unusual storyline, just like the title suggests (It’s not your usual horror story). The story is about a house that is haunted by spirits, sounds ordinary? Yes. But the movie’s story is THE king.


This horror-comedy thriller is a sequel that carries the spirit and essence of the first movie, Devi. Starring Tamannah Bhatia and Prabhu Deva in the lead roles, Director A.L Vijay’s Devi-2 is a unique story among the spate of horror comedies these days. With a lot of entertaining humor and hilariously scary scenes, there is never a dull moment throughout the film.


Directed by Milka S Selvakumar, Sandimuni is a horror-comedy movie featuring Natarajan Subramaniam and Manisha Yadav. The story revolves around Sandi, who loses his doting wife to an accident, but fate seems to have other plans in store for him, as he stumbles upon a woman. What is it about the woman that changes his life?


Rahul Paramahamsa directorial Jithan-2 is the second installment in the Jithan franchise. Jithan Ramesh plays the naïve and introvert Surya, a man who experiences paranormal activities in his new home and his happiness turns into nightmares. The mystery behind the eerie presence forms the crux of the story.
