The Marathi movie industry is waking up to the horror genre, just like the Bollywood movie industry. In 2017, the wake-up call was Vishal Furia’s Lapachappi, the Marathi horror movie that mixed patriarchy and female infanticide with horror elements. Since then, Furia is up with another movie, Bali, starring Swwapnil Joshi. GSEAMS has produced the Marathi sci-fi movie, Vicky Velingkar as well.
