It had potential but it lost its way
31 August 2019 | by yushendrayanaSee all my reviews

I was hooked by the synopsis and I thought it would be something. The movie is kinda unique for Indonesian horror, it tries to incorporate emotional thing in it with father-daughter relation. I was expecting something like Korean movie like The Host, The Wailing or Train to Busan in context of father-daughter emotional relation.

However the movie lost its way as the story progresses. The movie keeps giving you random ghost encounters which doesn't add to the story. Then at some point the MC just flips her switch and goes full melancholic with her father. The writer could have cut the random ghost encounters and build more emotion by elaborated more about their past. In conclusion, it had potential but it lost its way with too many random ghost encounter scenes which ultimately weakens the story and ending.
