    the movie zibahkhana is not that much impressive the old typical story that we read in the children story books about churrail and jin….

    the camera work is gud ….bt really i hate the scenes of cutting and taking blood out..ahhhhhhhh

    this doesnt seem a horror movie …..
    it doesnt give horror …jst uljhan hoi daikh kar….

    Excuse me Hina, but i was also at the screening of Zibahkhana and i wonder if we watched the same film because the film i saw had no sign of any churail or jinn at all!!!

    there was a sinister chai stall wallah with his red haired wife and later there was a crazy old lady with her strange family of “children” including the wonderful BABY!

    the film was a total riot….never have i seen such a reaction from an audience to a movie in Pakistan…the crowd roared with laughter and sometimes even squirmed and screamed at the sickening bits….but, a total riot of a movie! amazing.

    Incredible movie even if it had its weak points – BUT what a great and welcome change from the typical Lollywood and PTV style stuff that we are surrounded with all the time. Finally, at long last, a movie for the youth to identify with and to enjoy.

    and imagine, its an original screenplay and story…not even a copy! Unbelievable. Never had more fun in a movie in my life!
