Zibahkhana (Hell’s Ground)


Pakistan’s first spatter flick, in the tradition of Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, follows a group of teenagers in a van that runs out of gas in the middle of a dark, mysterious forest. A ghoulish nightmare unfolds when rotting, brain-starved zombies and a decapitated head-toting banshee-like hitchhiker begin to terrorize them; when a figure dressed in a blood-soaked burqa, sporting a medieval weapon, appears, the terrorized teens realize their night of horrors has just begun.


“It captures the country’s contradictions: it’s a place where the magazines are full of cat-walk fashions, but which also suffers from Dark Age politics.” –Telegraph
