starring: Dewi Perssik ·
Shine · Awan
nightclub dancer Shakir is raped and brutally killed by organ traffickers,
her angry ghost rises to seek bloody vengeance from the mud-pit [where
she was dumped]. Her heart had been sold to the hospital for a transplant
to save the life of a young woman named Monica. She's in critical condition,
suffering from an automobile accident that took her boyfriend's life
(they were having hot-sex-while-driving, ultimately causing the crash).
Monica does survive, thanks to the new heart. But Shakir wants revenge
and she threatens to take back her heart if Monica doesn't help her.
is an incredibly meanspirited film from scriptwriter-turned-director
Irwin Ibon Baihaki. It was also a much-needed major hit for pop singer
Dewi Perssik who had rather unremarkably starred in numerous genre films
for Yoyok Dumprink (DEMON
MERMAID GHOST, GHOST
OF THE VIRGIN GIRLFRIEND, et al). Dewi has since decided
to concentrate more on her singing career [some of her newer music videos
are included in this DVD package] while putting her movie mayhem on
a back burner.
costar here is Febriyanie Ferdzilla, now billed simply as Febriyanie.
She plays Monica with a charming abandonment. While not a cute as she
was in Rizal Mantovani's VIRGIN
BEACH CREATURE (in her breakout role of Nining), she still lights
up the screen.
