Six different concepts, six different stories, six different actors come together to bring to the audience a very uniquely written and directed series. Shockers is an attempt by Faruk to break the stereotypical perception of Horror shows and movies in the country. The stories are uniquely crafted to make sure they leave an impact and at the same time send chills down your spine.
