Fear is the Key


Four filmmaker friends rent a once grand but long decommissioned cinema on the outskirts of a rural town for the traveling film festival that they are organizing. The cinema is steeped in a dark and horrific history that they are not fully aware of.
Joining them is Riya, a foreign NGO worker from India with a unique sensitivity to paranormal occurrences and ghostly presences. In freakish out-of-season heavy downpours, they are holed up in the cinema as electricity and lines of communications are cut out. One of them accidentally smears blood from his open wound on a cursed tablet that he discovers. And paranormal activities born out of curses from the past begin to plague the hapless gang.
Together, they have to muster their courage, resort to their practical knowledge, depending only on each other, and face the relentless evil of the cursed cinema or face unspeakable, horrific consequences that this unforgiving place lashes out at them.
