The Best Indonesian Horror in 2006!!!
15 March 2007 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Cool, cool, cool! Love it, love it, love it! Finally ...... an Indonesian horror flick that doesn't hurt my eyes ... that creeps me out of my skin ... that really keeps me wanting to know more about the characters ... about what's going to happen next ...... and ... oh, Julie Estelle!!! Such a sexy girl! Awrite ... about the story. Well, Julie is Sam (or Samantha), who finds a dorm in a scary location. Well, she doesn't mind it being scary as long as the rent is cheap. Besides, something is like calling her to come inside the house. Very gently she hears her name being whispered by the breeze.

So, she starts living there despite. Her boyfriend, Agung (Evan Sanders ... dude, you need to learn how to act!), is worried. Sam doesn't really listen to him, and this is because he has done something wrong in the past that causes a cold cold war between them.

The keeper of the house sings an ancient Javanese chant that somehow gets into Sam's nerve. Next thing she knows ... people around her start to die a horrible death one by one. That's the mystery ... what is connecting her, the place, and all the deaths ... and the legendary "Kuntilanak" ... and Indonesian she-demon. (In Malaysia, it's called "Pontianak".) I like the fact that the movie redefines an urban legend. In real life, people always say that Kuntilanak is a rather pretty ghost. Here, no way! Not pretty at all. In fact, Kuntilanak here does not look like an ex-human being at all.

I also like how Kuntilanak appears (not gonna tell you guys here ... not gonna ruin the surprise!). Everything is so gorgeously creepy and beautifully spooky. The visual and art direction is very very very good! The music is not overdone.

And the ending ......... I love the ending!!! You guys also have to check out the sexy Ratu Felisha! Boy, she's hot! And the old bad woman is also great. (She reminds me of my devilish aunt).

This is the best Indonesian horror of 2006!!! Definitely!
