The movie somehow reminded me of old Indonesian horror flicks (like sundel bolong) where you have some bloke reading some verses from the holy book with heaps of echo added in for good measure. The plot was wafer thin, and the acting left a lot to be desired especially the female co-star who played Seri.
Perhaps I should have walked into the movie with different expectations but the fact that this film was rated “the scariest malaysian horror movie so far” did set a pretty high benchmark to start with.
The crowd that we had the honor of watching the movie with made me feel like we forgot to bring costumes and umbrellas for the rocky horror show. There was THAT much participation! Annoying yet fun at the same time.
Overall, I think the M’sian film-makers will fare better with love-stories and comedies instead of horror flicks. For those who are planning to watch it, wait for the VCD… unless of course you’re seriously into that participatory audience thing which the mall cinema is famous for 🙂
