Yet another pile of movies from Indonesia arrived recently and this time out it’s the creepy lil’ film, “Legenda Sundel Bolong”. The cover for this one sold Neko-chan on watchin’ it first…… Hehehehe!!
Ooooh!! Soooo scary!!
So anyway, the synopsis reads as follows: “In a small village in Central Java, many unexplainable things have been happening. Villagers have disappeared suddenly, and then found dead. Imah (Jian Batari), a traditional dancer falls in love with Sarpa (Baim). After marriage, they decided to move to another village to start a new life and away from the terror. Imah stopped her dancing career and Sarpa gets a job working for Danapati (Tio Pakusadewo), as a plantation worker. Their move to the new village has upset the locals since they consider Imah a cheap dancer who has no morals. Danapati goes after Imah and does everything to have her, including sends Sarpa to another town for some work. Danapati forcefully rapes her repeatedly. When Sarpa comes back home, Imah tries to cover up everything that has happened to her. Imah’s new village goes through the same happenings as her old village and even worst. A lot of people are found dead with a hole in their back. The locals start getting tensed and blame each other for the killings. While trying to find the killer, the ghost “Sundel Bolong” (the ghost with the hole on her tummy) appears and creates terror in the village. Will Sarpa ever find out what happened to Imah? What is the connection with the ghost and the killings? What actually happens with the legend of Sundel Bolong?”
Pretty straightforward…. so how does it play out? Lets “Read On” and see…
