Recently released 'Stree' starring Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao may have been a horror-comedy, but Jaaved Jaaferi starrer 'Lupt' is a clear cut horror film, which was made even more evident from the trailer of Lupt released on Wednesday.

Lupt is described as "a sinister, uncanny, hair‐raising journey into the realms of the unknown".

The trailer begins with Jaaved in the city as he goes about his working day, but sees people that nobody else can, from a little girl in the middle of the road to a girl with long black hair in his office. He goes to a doctor who diagnoses him with insomnia and recommends a break from work. Jaaved heads to a cabin in the woods with his family, but the appearances worsen as he now sees demons in the form of his family members. Is it all in his head or are there really demons surrounding him?

Watch the trailer below: 

Many of the themes shown in the trailer are reminiscent of Hollywood films, including the main premise that a family goes out in the woods where they face a demonic presence.

Lupt also stars Vijay Raaz, Karan Aanand, Meenakshi Dixit, Niki Walia and Rishab Chadha and is written and Directed by Prabhuraj. Produced by Hanwant Khatri and Lalit Kiri, Lupt is set to release on October 5, clashing with Aayush Sharma's Loveratri and Ayushmann Khurrana's AndhaDhun.
