User Reviews

 
Hit and miss horror film from Indonesia.
21 November 2018 | by elmoslivelySee all my reviews

This movie relies to much on gore and violence for it's horror. It has a few jump scares that are okay, but a lot of the dialogue is very melodramatic. The acting is good overall but the direction is derivative not unlike William Friedkin or the films of James Wan or Blumhouse. It also has some decent horror makeup effects.
