Not bad, not bad at all, especially for a low budget feature
7 February 2003 | by (Medan, Indonesia) – See all my reviews

What ever happened if we mess with the dead? Death! That's what happening with this four young people which have a bizarre hobby to hunt these urban legend ghost . They still never met with the ghosts that they looking for, until they went to a remote village to unlock the dark secret of that village, with playing Jelangkung, a traditional ghost calling game with a medium. They think they not succeed to raised the dead, so they decided to went back home. They should do the "think again"! The evil manage to catch them up, and the terror begins!

If Japan has `Ringu' and Hong Kong has `The Eye', Indonesia has `Jelangkung'. Jelangkung is the most successful horror movies ever made in Indonesia and haunting the theaters for months.

In my point of view, `Jelangkung' is a so-so horror film. Even it manage to scare the peoples who's watched it, but technically I think the directors (Rizal Mantovani & Jose Purnomo) should need to return the movie to editing room once again. They often trapped in unneeded situations and boring conversation (that looks hard to looks scientific!). The movie even can be shorter! The audio department needs to re-record. But I must raise my hat for the cinematography by Jose Purnomo, because it looks so slick and hip and spoiling our eyes. The acting is not award worthy, but considering this is their pictorial debut, they do well to integral their self with the movie's construction.

Considering the tight budget that it had, "Jelangkung" is really a well-done film feature. Now we gain other talented directors to make the Indonesian movies more colorful. The sequel (`Tusuk Jelangkung') is going to out this year. I hope the new director (Dimas Djayadiningrat) could make it even better than this one.

5/10
