Summary: Don't be afraid, this Kuntilanak isn't scary!
22 February 2007 | by kabankkabankSee all my reviews

I watched Kuntilanak on VCD at my house. My friend brought it and I was really curious what would be it looked like. Well, I must say the building is pretty scary but it's dissonant for girl's hostel. We all know girls won't living in dusty place, fearful, dirty and far away from the the town especially for rich girls. It's ridiculous, isn't? About the main character, Samantha(Julie Estelle), I didn't see a character inside her. Sometimes, she was weak, sissy, and need for help. The other times, she was strong, spitfire, and self-supporting. And Agung(Evan Sanders) really played mess, not good, not good! There are so many weakness in Kuntilanak. There is no surprise in the end of the movie, the tragedy of the death in this movie is really boring, the setting places are too narrow, the conversations are too stiff, and many more. Please, don't even try to make a horror movie with small budget. But, the huge mistake is about the style of the movie. The characters died one by one in a horror movie is an old school, out of date. For Rijal Mantovani, you need to be more creative to find fresh ideas for horror movie. Trust me, Wes Craven is one of the old school student. And look at him, He is bankrupt. I'm sorry to give rating 3/10 for this one!
