Your Favorite Catgirl has another odd one to start off this year’s Halloween Movie Review festival… and in keeping with our “Haunted House theme” for this month, I’ll start off by giving you my quirky impressions of the 2012 Indonesian horror goodie “Rumah Kentang” aka “House of the Potato”. Yep… that’s right… haunted potato horror. Just when you think the Indonesians might just run out of crazy things to haunt people they always manage to surprise you. Hehehehe!! 😉
Our synopsis goes: “When her mother passes away, Farah is forced to return from Melbourne to Jakarta in order to care for her sister Rika. However, things are more complicated than they seemed for Farah soon discovers that there are two problems that she has to resolve: caring and providing for her and her sister and finding a new place to stay as their current home is rented after her mother sold their old home in order to allow Farah to study in Melbourne, which is now too expensive for her to pay by herself. A silver lining comes in the form of her mother’s will that informs her that they are still in possession of her mother’s first house, which she deemed was a good investment due to its strategic location among the upper class, but has failed to be sold due to the fact that the place is haunted. The two sisters move in, but strange things start to happen… “
Killer ghostly potatoes? Nope it’s not a joke, but is in fact a very real movie.With a silly basic idea like this, you just know your Favorite Catgirl’s gotta quench her obsessive need to see it…. and you, o’ lucky Gentle Visitors can let me tell you all about it so that you won’t necessarily have to. Sounds like a winning idea to me… So watch ya waiting for? Grab your crucifix, your Holy Water, a sharp mystic potato peeler, and some sour cream & chives and let’s get on with it, shall we? Goofy scares await!!
