Writer’s Observation

With this Indonesian movie “Deadly Love Poetry”or (“Puisi Cinta Yang Membunuh”) being a horror film that you will opt to watch when you had the chance to do so. If you had not actually seen or heard this movie prior to you watching it, you will not have any expectations with regards to what it was in for.

The writer just failed to give the entertaining or wholesome script of the movie, that at least with regards to giving the audience the entertainment they deserve. The narrative was just insanely slow, and there is nothing overly interesting or worthwhile happened in the next 45 minutes of you watching this movie. You will simply give up and utter your boredom and will just prefer to leave the movie. Just talk about the swing and the miss from the writer.

If you are someone with a limited exposure with Indonesian movies and you are not that familiar with the characters ensemble in the movie, you will surely have nothing to say. The actors and the actresses here virtually had none to work with at all. The movie had a bit to give. There was a little blood in this film, but it was not really enough to make up about the lack of the proper storyline.

For one horror movie that simply failed to give it, then this movie is not the one that you would recommend to watch by many. It is a total waste of money, effort and time. And believe me if I say to you that, you will not bother finishing the movie, if you had the chance to start watching it, because the plot will surely failed to entertain you.
