This winter..fear will have a new name...
Prithviraj’s ‘Ezra’ is an upcoming Malayalam movie directed by Jay K. The movie also features Tovino Thomas and Priya Anand. Rahul Raj is the music composed and Tirru is handling the cinematography. The movie is a horror thriller.
Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. And though one can scoff at the theory of haunted houses and ghosts, there are still a few things that defy logic and explanation. That's one of the reason why the team of Prithviraj and Priya Anand's upcoming horror-thriller Ezra asked the services of a priest by the second week of its filming.
Its director Jay K tells us, "We were shooting in an old house in Fort Kochi for the movie when all of a sudden the lights started flickering. We brushed it off as random power fluctuation but that apparently was not the case."
The team had its technical support look at the issue; however it was of no avail. "The power generator soon failed. Once we got that up and running, the next such incident we had to face was that soon one of our cameras stopped working and then its support panthers gave away. There were all sort of chaos happening," explains the filmmaker.
He says this prompted that team to ask a priest to visit the set just to be sure. "We didn't want to take any chances because it was spooky and the equipment are expensive. We gathered the entire cast and crew of the day and the priest blessed the sets before we resumed filming," Jay says. "The funny thing was the lights were flickering even while he was reciting the bible."
Gimmick or not, the horror movie sure seems to have caught the attention of viewers even during the filming. Incidentally, the supposedly haunted sets of TheConjuring 2 was also blessed by a priest after a heavy curtain kept waving violently when there was no breeze or anyone near, said its actor Patrick Wilson
