Tumbbad is a psychological horror film that contains rich visuals and strong metaphors. This Tumbbad movie review is generally positive, with the film effectively creating a surreal illusion that ends up playing on the viewer’s mind long after the film is over.
The story centers around a young boy that has faced a personal tragedy and decides, after meeting a spooky old lady, to search for the buried treasure she tells him about, thus setting out on the path to greed. When he grows up he sets out to find the treasure of a legendary local monster called Hastar.
This film features enough blood and gore to satisfy horror fans but the most interesting aspect of the story is the way that greed can make monsters out of people and how they can be much more malicious than cursed supernatural entities.
