Writer’s Observation

In the Malaysia cinema there are so many cuts, maybe because this movie is rated pg13 rated. The movie may be better than the Makmum; however, it is still just a middling. The plot of the movie is just simple.

The movie on trailer is also misleading the audience. There are the same formula like the Makmum Credits with special makeup and effects on the ghost or the demon. It is quite scary and the lighting is also good even the scenes on the dark. A big kudos for it for this kind of movie from Indonesia, cause it can be said that this is not really a bad movie, but this is not also as great as the Pengabdi Setan aka the Satan Slave.

The one redeeming fact of it is the time screening, which stretches in a bit of 1 hour to 45 minutes. If you disregard the time screening, you will notice that it has no plot at all. It has a minor storyline that develops in the middle and connected a little bit into its main plot. The rest of the story can be seen that it is absolutely the same scenarios again and again. The movie is annoying and boring, until you will finally understand that this is everything that they can give. There is really no story and there is a scene that would finally work but for then, it is just a short time.

The story had been revised for a lot of times, and that is what makes it boring. But then the cinematography is their masterpiece and the color grading had been good as well. The actors acting was all but natural, there is nothing special and extraordinary to look forward to. For those curious audiences out there, good luck to you if you want to watch this movie and give it a chance, you can still, but this is a reminder to you that this movie, is just a swing then a miss, and it keeps repeating the same scenes over again.
