Two newly weds Adjie and Astrid, along with 3 of their best friends decided to have an interstate road trip as a last attempt to reconcile Adjie with his estranged little sister Ladya. Their trip is however abruptly interrupted when they run into Maya, a strange girl out of nowhere, who wanders aimlessly into their path. "I've been robbed" is all she has to say. The friends unanimously decided to give her a ride to her isolated house by the end of the woods. Maya introduces Adjie and friends to her blue-blooded mother Dara, a woman of ageless enigma and few spoken words. Dara insists that their kindness should be repaid with a dinner feast. This is where the night turns into a crimson-hell for the 6 friends, who find themselves trapped and hunted down by Dara and her cult-like family of her three deadly protégés, born and raised to systematically eliminate unsuspecting passers-by for one nefarious reason. Slaughtered one by one, everybody will bleed, the darkest of nights never looked... Written by
The whole story did remind me a bit of the ultra gore French flick AL'interieur (2007). It's all about capturing the baby. Made in Indonesia I knew already that they could come out with ultra gore flicks and this files perfectly under that category.
You have to take your time before things go very wrong. The first 20 minutes I thought, what the hell, there's nothing to see here in this hyped flick but then slowly while eating things go wrong. It's from then, around 25 minutes that it slowly moves from torturing towards slashing and to end in a gory final.
A bunch of friends are out on the road when suddenly a girl is on the road asking to have a ride with them. They agree and start to know Maya, being polite she asks them to come inside her house and have dinner. They agree. In comes Dara, the strange mother of Maya. Welcome to hell.
One of those surprising movies that really start slow and you need some patience before the red stuff comes in. Excellent effects done old school and surely not all killings are for the fainted-hearted.
