'Raaz' (2002): Bipasha Basu's first leading role in a horror flick turned out to be the one that established her presence in the Hindi film industry. Her portrayal of a woman who is pursued by a spirit received positive reviews and earned her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress
'Raaz 3D' (2012): Helmed by Vikram Bhatt, Bipasha Basu's performance in 'Raaz 3', that of enthusing jealousy, craziness and sexiness seamlessly, was praised by critics and audience alike. Upon release, the film emerged as a box office success after a period of relatively low phase for Bipasha
'Creature 3D' (2014): In the 3D thriller-science-fiction film directed by Vikram Bhatt, Bipasha Basu stars alongside Pakistani debutant Imran Abbas Naqvi. The film narrates a story of Ahana who runs a hotel where an unknown creature strikes and wreaks havoc. The film was panned by critics for its poor script and underperformed at the box office
'Aatma' (2013): In 'Aatma', a psychological thriller directed by Suparn Verma starring Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles, Bips essays the role of a mother who fights to keep her daughter safe from the ghost of her father.

'Rudraksh' (2004): Bips plays a paranormal researcher studying practices like voodoo, spirit possession, magic and healing powers. This Mani Shankar film has several references to 'Ramayana' in terms of the good vs evil battle. However, despite its eerie undertone, the film failed to excite the audience and was a commercial failure.
'Darr Sabko Lagta Hai' (TV show): Bipasha has not only conquered the horror genre in Bollywood, but on the small screen as well. She made her TV debut with the show 'Darr Sabko Lagta Hai' and feels one should support horror films and TV shows more as it is the only genre where 'scope is left' as everything else is 'over exhausted in India'
Bipasha Basu, who has done a string of supernatural films, is happy with the tag of 'horror queen'. As the actress turns 40, we take a look at her 'horror'fic journey in Bollywood
