This Indonesian made Netflix original at first glimpse you'd assume is a killer doll-esque movie, but that couldn't be further from the truth. If you're looking for Chucky or Robert the doll you'll be sorely disappointed, this is more your possession type film.
Now regarding the possession sub-genre I generally don't like them, the tropes they hold tend to bore me but thankfully they throw most of them out the window here and go for something somewhat more exciting.
Now I can't say much about the plot without giving something away so I'll not bother. I will however say that when the story is finally laid out in front of you I think you'll be pleasantly surprised, it's well constructed and very much not predictable.
Again as mentioned sadly the film does have its flaws, a couple regard the story and one near the end took this down from a potential 7 to 6. Another is the lack of consistency, it plays out like a serious horror yet has moments of ultra cheesiness that ruin the atmosphere altogether.
Regardless this is a very fun, exciting and oddly scary in places little film that is not what you'd expect it to be. Despite my underwhelming rating I would recommend this.
Surprisingly well constructed plot
Some genuinely creepy moments
Some poor camerawork
Bizarre soundtrack choices
Oddly cheesy in places
I struggled to tell the two leading ladies apart
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
I'm left wondering if the casting director specifically sought out the sickest looking girl they could for the role
Demonic possession causes nose growth
