Plausible to be watch
27 November 2005 | by (Petaling Jaya, Selangor) – See all my reviews

I still don't get how the Spanish people see this film to give them awards... OK.. I still sing "Pulangkan" in my shower, the main song by Misha Omar and that song still haunts me.. in a good way. And Maya Karin is a good actress but the film is bad on the 'to be scared' part which is non-existent. However, Maya Karin is the most beautiful vampire I ever seen... next to Kate Beckinsale, of course.

I had to admit, this film is the one of the two film that seem to have passed the image quality in Malaysia for the past years after P Ramlee... (the other is Puteri Gunung Ledang) but I had to admit that long-film directors need to be creative or at least gain more experience like to see more western movies. The image quality and the storyline are synchronized in the western side or at least at China or Japan or the country around us. But I did not mean that they need to have sex and shredded clothing. I still think that Malaysia's advertisement (like Petronas and etc) and short-film are wonderful and creative. I think, these people should have the privilege to direct long-films...

The storyline is acceptable and fairly simple. But what confuses me the most is the fact that if you add stupid comments like... look between your legs to see ghost... it would be too superstitious and unrealistic and too uncivilized; since your bottom is in the movie I sincerely don't get that for the first time.

The audio is good unless you have to comment on the side where too much Pulangkan songs in the middle of the show and the red-teary eyed and weird makeup. Marsani looks like he had talc powder in his hair. Even I can do that kind of makeup trick. Erra Fazira and Yusry do much better on that.

The scene where Ana and Norman were in their house and Meriam tried to scare them... doesn't work. More like a child's scream (this is suppose to be a horror right?) and as an audience, naturally we knew what's going to happen next if the character went silent for seconds.

As a Malaysian teen who sometime writes stories and script, I've develop a conclusion that younger generation should have a chance in this industry without the limits of over-18 in various genre. I publish better vampire stories and adult love stories than these old folks does. Even Pontianak Harum Sundal Malam script seems to be so lame.

But the dance choreograph and the set is marvelous like in Puteri Gunung Ledang.

And for your information, the flower in the movie is not Harum Sundal Malam. My mom and dad says that Harum Sundal Malam is different.

Anyway, the sequel is coming. And yes, I think it would be more confusing than ever. But Rusdi Ramli is going to be in it :)
