“I am always fascinated by the mental struggles that people and characters go through. People descending into madness, both supernaturally and metaphorically, make for fascinating narratives and is a favorite theme of mine. The Haunting, inspired from true life is the kind of visceral supernatural sucker punch, that will make you clench your teeth and goose your bumps. I could not have asked for a better platform than Amazon miniTV for this story, owing to the vast network and audience base that the service has and its incredible creative teams, that empower creators”, said Tanveer, Writer, Producer and Director for The Haunting.
