Looking for the supernatural, 4 young people start investigating urban legends in Jakarta such as the haunted Rumah kentang. Not satisfied with their findings, they head for a more challenging phenomenon situated at Angkerbatu, West Java. One of them brings a ouiji board-type toy called "Jelangkung" to call spirits which changes their life upon returning to Jakarta. Written by
If you liked the American THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT than you probably will love the Indonesian pendant JELANGKUNG. The story is neither new nor original, but the directors manage to film truly scary and creepy sequences that send shiver down the spine and let your neck hairs stand up. Another example that you don't need money to make an outstanding horror film. It's nice to see Indonesia back in the horror field, and I do hope that JELANGKUNG will get the praise it so deserves. One of the best scary horror movies of the new millennium, this one is about a hundred times scarier than most of the new Hollywood films that call themselves 'horror'. JELANGKUNG deserves the highest rating, no doubt about it! 10/10
