Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt, who has been associated with many horror films in the past, says he always had the ability to scare people ever since he was a child.

"Right from childhood, I used to read a lot about occult and share ghost stories when my friends or cousins used to come home. I always had this ability to scare people since I was a kid, but somehow (I) never got the opportunity to use it," said Bhatt, who is known for horror films including "Raaz", "1920", and "Haunted".

"But then 'Raaz' happened and it changed everything and then there was no looking back," he added.

The 43-year-old is currently busy promoting his film "Horror Story". Releasing Friday, the film is directed by Ayush Raina and features Karan Kundra, Radhika Menon, Nandini Vaid, Sheetal Singh, Nishant Malkani among others.

Talking about the unique selling point of the film, Bhatt says it will be "fear".

"Every film has a unique selling point. This film has fear as its unique selling point. There are no songs, its a story of one night and the film is relentlessly horror. The story that revolves around seven youngsters who challenge each other to spend a night at the infamous hotel in the heart of the city," he said.
