From Rizal Mantovani,
the popular director of WATERFALL
OF PENGANTIN and the WATERFALL
sequel, comes this award winning horror blockbuster (Indonesia's
top gross film of 2006). Here is the story of Samantha, a young university
student, who finds an inexpensive girls' boarding house just walking
distance from the college. But, unfortunately, it's right on the edge
of an old cemetery, rumored to be haunted by an ancient demon known
as the Kunilanak [a half woman/half horse mythical vengeance creature].
Nobody believes those stories - of course - but soon people connected
to the house begin to die violently. Samantha, oddly not bothered
by the mayhem, actually seems emboldened by it.
is the director to watch. Someday he will find International success.
His movies are too damn good for that not to happen. It's impossible
not to be thunderstruck by the extraordinary design of his craft.
Rizal came to motion pictures through music videos, helming more than
400 between 1992-1998. He knows how to get the most from a camera.
Estelle is the Indonesian scream-queen, starring in a series
of hit horror movies including MACABRE,
RAID, Firegate and of course this film.
