Wilson Louis in scripting stage of film on Nightmares

MUMBAI: Through his earlier films like Ho Sakta Hai, Mallika and Kaalo, Wilson Louis has been mastering the ?horror genre?. Besides, he is always been on the look out for good and catchy subjects.

Currently, on the finishing stages of his fourth film Shout, a psychological paranormal thriller about evil black magic and negative forces, Louis is scripting his fifth venture on sleep paralysis or the Old Hag Syndrome.

What is the Old Hag Syndrome? "It‘s a situation where your body gets locked and you can only get hallucinations which leads you to hallucinate about devils. But in some cases there have been deaths too,? Louis reveals adding, ?this film will be titled 3.33.? 

Why 3.33? ?It refers to 3.33 am which is considered as the devil‘s hour or the witch‘s hour and the effect of witches at this particular time is the strongest. It is the hour opposite to the death time of Jesus Christ which is 3.33 pm and also symbolises love,? Louis reveals. ?It will take me another month to complete the scripting with dialogues. Right now, I am approaching a good studio for it,? he adds.

This being a serious subject, which star would he approach? ?To me, script is the king. Once you have a good script, the rest follows and you get some fine results even from amateur artistes. The only thing that is vital is that you need a good backing from a studio.?

But where did he get the inspiration? "I have been a victim of this syndrome from childhood and am still facing it. Being a science student, I consider it a subconscious mind from a sleeping zone going to Rapid Eye Movement (REM) process. But the visuals are so strong that defies all logic. So I decided to make a film out of it and reach out to the ones who are disturbing me," Louis adds.

In spite of Kaalo getting several international awards and great reviews, why didn?t the film do well in India? ?The film was not well publicised. Kaalo was well-appreciated and recovered its cost with Star TV buying its satellite rights for Rs 12.5 milion. The DVD of Kaalo is now out and is seen with great interest. A lesson that I learnt from Kaalo is that you shouldn?t make a film with people who can?t promote it,? Louis avers.
