This is an Indonesian Wayan brother's ripoff of Sccary Movie with the film making fun of its own horror movie industry. And believe me - there is a lot to make fun of in this horror industry. As with any spoof there isn't really much of a plot to tell... High school kids face ghosts, demons and witches. Eyes pop out and ghosts bang their heads against walls. Possessed fly off whilst being exorcised. Headless zombies lose their heads. Witches get shoeshines. And so forth... O yeah... and Spiderman makes an appearance...
I'm not quite sure what to think of this movie, so I put myself to this test: Did I enjoy the movie? Yes. Did it make me laugh? From time to time. Did I enjoy it more than Scary Movie? Yes. Is it pointless? Yes. Is it so bad that its good? Hmm... not really.
Acting was from bad to decent with Andhika Gumilang doing the only proper acting job, even if his role was being a geeky idiot... But well... the guy has potential in comparison with some other members of the cast like ms Ugly Betty (watch the movie).
Special effects are mostly OK and don't subtract from the movie. Ghosts are nicely done, sometimes better than in the original movie.
Its actually the most surprising thing about the Indonesian horror movies. No matter how bad the plot and directing it seems that the 'monsters' are actually nicely done, even though they are often overused and badly filmed to change them from scary into ridiculous.
I'll give the movie a five and let you decide... I don't regret watching it, but don't think I'll ever reminisce the movie...
