The singular chiller that rocked the religious nation of Indonesia, restored from the original camera negative! In 1980, exploitation studio Rapi Films and writer/director Sisworo Gautama Putra (PRIMITIVES, THE WARRIOR) transformed the country’s genre films with one of the most groundbreaking shockers in Asian horror history. While mourning the death of his mother, a troubled teen discovers a nightmare world of restless spirits, supernatural vengeance and occult terror.
