new breeze of Indonesian (horror) movie
26 December 2001 | by (Jakarta, Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Other girls are screaming and keep on going to the toilets (with their boyfriends), but I almost cry when watching this movie. It's been such a long time that there's (almost) no (great) movies in Indonesia, but this movie is outstanding in it's own way.

The story is about a bunch of (Jakarta) college guys who loves to find (and witnessing) ghosts - but they can't find the 'real' one... until the go to Angkerbatu village , a small village that has a horror history : in '30's an innocent boy who's wrongly accused of causing disease being killed by the local people, and not long after that, people of the doomed village lost mysteriously one by one.

So...one of the guys who thinks he has the gut put a jelangkung (an ancient local Javanese way to call the ghost) on the cemetery (of that boy). He says the pray,"Jelangkung...comes without invitation, go home without accompanied"... No one knows that his 'pray' comes true, the dead boy comes alive for them , and follow them to Jakarta. And the horror starts here....

Okay, the woods scenes are pretty close to the Blair Witch ones. But - once again this movie still has a touch. The ghosts are so local and so believable which is very scarry, like they can meet you after watching the movie. Also the camera works of Jose is very good and alive which is add the spookiness. The duo directors also can build the (scary) scenes intensely and edit this movie well. One thing that give a lesser point is the main actor, firstly he's not expressive enough, second he's always looking neat all the time, like we can see he's been put some powder in every scene on his face. But the rest of the casts are great especially the fat guy who's so natural. Other thing that bother me is the ending...I don't know why, just don't feel right - like the duo made it in a rush.

But as an Indonesian, I'm very proud, this movie definitely a new breeze not only in Indonesian movie, but for the new generation of movie makers and audiences.
