    Kuntilanak2 Kembali Lagi! Yes! 

    Glad to see that Trans TV is doing some ENJOYABLE re-runs, some fine Indonesian horror movies, for Hallowe’en.
    The excellent ‘Kuntilanak’ is one already advertised, so I hope ‘Pocong’ will be another.
    One of my faves from ten years ago or more was ‘Tali Pocong Perawan,’ starring the luscious Dewi Persik.


    I can happily watch her acting skills for hours and hours. She’s still raising hell in the headlines here, a feisty gal.
    Sadly, the equally watchable Julia Perez succumbed to cancer a while back.

    She too was a horror star appreciated by vast numbers of movie-goers here.

    A sad loss.

    So exactly what are these dreaded supernatural beings we’re talking about, that may grace our TV screens in just a few days time?

    Feast your eyes on these frightful spectres!




    Western readers may be baffled by all the above, so I offer you a link to an old post…
    …which may enlighten you.
    I got out of the habit of watching local scary films, because producers began giving us dancing pocongs and silly kuntilanaks, which trivialised the genre.

    Roll on Hallowe’en!

      Yes you are a good adviser for the Indonesian horor film.
      The older film is almost always better.

      Horor should be horor not comedians.

    Kebangkitan Sundelbolong? A New Free-Flow Horror? 

    Suzanna was a brilliant and beautiful Indonesian actress, who died a few years ago, after making dozens of films, most, certainly the ones I’ve seen, of the supernatural variety, in which she often played Nyi Loro Kidul, the Goddess of the South Seas.

    Or one of Her Majesty’s various kin!

    But another legendary character she played was that of Sundelbolong, one of the wide range of fantastical phantoms here in Indonesia, which I have mentioned in the past…

    Pocong! Kuntilanak! Sundelbolong! Wewegombel…Ghosties and Ghoulies of Indonesia 

    In the case of Sundelbolong, she (a lot more of ‘she’ than ‘he’ in the horror pantheon here!) is distinguished by having a hole in her back, often with writhing worms and maggots milling around within!

    I’m not sure if it was the Suzanna ‘Sundelbolong‘ movie in which I saw a very funny scene, where a yummy young lady wanders into a warung (street eatery) and orders a beer!

    Ah, for the good old days -now you can’t even get a take-away bottle from your local minimart, such is the kill-joy climate imposed by sectarian bigotry!

    The gal quaffs the large beer in seconds, orders another, and after half-a-dozen, consumed at similar speeds, she’s inevitably attracted an audience of impressed local guys!

    Then she introduces herself as ‘Sun.’

    The men stare at each other, chorus ‘SUNDELBOLONG’ and make a sharp exit!



    The beer, you see, was simply pouring out of her back!

     One of the good things about Suzanna’s good old films is that they tended to feature attractive women, whose appearance was what one is entitled to expect of attractive women in films, like these pretty wenches below.

    Sadly, when the good old movies get a re-run on tv, the priggish censorship currently in vogue imposes opaque clouds, to ensure their thighs, mid-riffs, cleavage etc., are childishly obscured!

    Dimana Bokong2nya? – Where Are Our Buttocks? 

    But now we read there’s going to be a re-make –

    Remake of Suzanna’s best horror film slated for 2018 – The Jakarta Post

    -so I hope they can match Suzanna’s characterisation  of the heroine!

      I like to watch the older films here too.
      The people in the crowd scenes look a lot happier then than a lot of real crowds look now.
      I will go and see how the new Sundelbolong compares.
      I hope they cast Depe in the role. She is perfect for it.
      Except she has no hole in her back.
