Her mother, who was a successful singer, is dying from a mysterious disease and her father does not have money to support the family.

The skeptical Rini befriends Hendra, son of the religious Ustadz, and they learn that her mother was infertile and joined a cult that worships Satan to have children. And now, when Ian will be seven, they will take the boy with them. What can they do to protect Ian?Written by

Whether or not you will like this film depends on how appealing the title of this review is to you.
It's a real mash up containing many, many tried and tested horror elements woven together well. Super derivative. What it does, it does very well... but there is nothing here you haven't seen before.
The cinematography is great. Super atmospheric and a lot of interesting stuff going on at the same time.
It fell a little flat for me because it was SO derivative, but a lot of people will love it. If I had never seen a horror film before, I would probably have given it 9/10. But I've seen lots of them so the lack of anything new made it a 5/10 experience for me. Still, it's free on Shudder so worth a watch.
