Review : Raaz Reboot – A Romance and Horror Reloaded Movie
Raaz Reboot is the fourth installment of the Raaz Series. It doesn’t make any sense to context any its just another typical type of Vikram Bhatt’s movie. You’ll see the windows opening by themselves, creaking doors, dark secrets and yes CGI crows. Some of the horror scenes will make you laugh. Raaz series definately needs a reboot but this film is not a answer for that.
