December Pookal (transl. December flowers) is a 1986 Indian Tamil-language slasher film starring Mohan, Revathi, Nalini and Nizhalgal Ravi, Goundamani and Senthil. It was released on 14 January 1986.[1]


Chandru loses his wife in an accident, then goes on a killing spree, murdering all those women who refused to donate blood to his wife when she was hospitalised. Poornima, Chandru's new girlfriend, confronts him about his state of mind, but instead of getting him help, she tells him that she feels privileged to be killed by him. The police arrive on time to shoot Chandru in the back.



The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[3][4]
