Less than a week remains for 1920 to release and if initial reactions are any indications, the film is all set to scare the daylight out of the audiences.

The film has quite a few moments which are bound to send a shiver down the spine of a viewer. Also, with all due respect to PHOONK which did manage to thrill the audience and turn into a box office success, 1920 seems to be quite a few notches up when it comes to getting the scare factor bang on.

Directed by Vikram Bhatt who boasts of his RAAZ being the biggest grosser of the current century when it comes to horror genre, 1920 tells the story of a young woman (Adah Sharma) who gets possessed as she moves to a mansion with her husband (Rajnish Duggal). While Adah is a revelation in her very first film as a tormented person, excellent lighting, great background score, haunting setting and some able direction by Bhatt do the rest, hence making 1920 a terrifying experience.

A horror-thriller which is releasing on 12th September all over, 1920 - as the name suggests - is a period film. Though Vikram Bhatt isn't quite painting the town red while praising his own work, word from the insiders has it that 1920 is all set to break the flop tag that the filmmaker has been carrying with him since AWARA PAAGAL DEEWANA (2002), which was his last successful film at the box office.

Says Vikram Bhatt, ''When I look back in the past, I was continuing to make films left, right and center. The quality suffered, of course. This is when I decided to step back and get my priorities in place. I took a break and channelised all my energies into 1920. I worked on the film for more than a year and in a week from now, it is going to be show time.''
