Having been always molested by her step-father, Samantha decided to move to a boarding house that is located in a very haunted area. Rumours had it that Kuntilanak (the she-demon) lived up in a hundreds of years old tree near the house. Her boyfriend Agung tried to warn her, but she did not pay any attention. Soon, people around her died one by one tragically. Even Agung then mysteriously disappeared. Written by Ve Handojo

An Atmosphere To Bring Home
15 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Among the new Indonesian horror movies during the last two years, "Kuntilanak" a.k.a. "The Chanting" may have been the only one that pays real attention to story-telling and strong characterization, and of course, a proper visual treatment.

The story is simple and formulaic. Rather than giving away cheap thrills, "Kuntilanak" is more about a creepy atmosphere. It starts rather slow, and the building up is a little too step-by-step. Nevertheless, the makers seem to really understand what kind of horror they are making - a B-grade horror, that is, judging from the typical shower scene, the screaming babes, and the too-hunky guy with robotic gesture.

Oh, and Julie Estelle rocks big time! Man, she's so creepy! The chant is original and freaking scary. I so don't want to listen to it in the dark. Though lacking of jump-off-your-seat scenes, "Kuntilanak" has succeeded in making me and my friends peeping through our hands throughout the movie. There are only 2 or 3 points where we went screaming, but all worth our noisiests! I came out of the theater shivering, plus craving for a sequel. Please, please, please!
