Yaamirukka Bayamey is an interesting film that combines well-known stylistic elements of the horror and a gory looking ghost and so on with an adult humour. It is a surprisingly well-made ‘horror-comedy’ that succeeds in continuously exploiting our irrational fear of the unknown even while nudging us to laugh at it. Thus, we have sound to manipulate emotion, visual imagery to create scary atmospherics, and scene cuts that escalate the tension to the maximum before the final moment. All in all, this is a fun summer film and should work regardless of whether one believes in the supernatural or not. Whether the ghost haunting Kiran’s ancestral property or is it a conman’s master moves?

Shock is a rather unique horror flick, especially to Tamil cinema. It avoids special effects, violence or gore, instead relying on atmosphere and anticipation to give us the chills. The flip side of the above technique is that the movie is slow-paced. While there are enough shocks scattered around to avoid the feeling that the movie is dragging, the overuse of sequences that increase our anticipation before ending in an anti-climactic manner leads to an impression of watching a very slow movie.
