The Queen of Black Magic – Indonesia, 2019 – preview

The Queen of Black Magic is a 2019 Indonesian horror feature film about three families being terrorised by the titular entity.

Directed by Kimo Stamboel (DreadOut; Macabre; Takut: Faces of Fear) from a screenplay written by Joko Anwar (Impetigore; Satan’s Slaves), Ratu Ilmu Hitan (original title) stars Hannah Al Rashid, Ario Bayu, Adhisty Zara aka Zara JKT48 and Muzakki Ramdhan.


Hanif takes his wife Nadya and their three children to the orphanage where he was raised. The caretaker of the orphanage, Mr Bandi, is very old and seriously ill. Two of Hanif’s best friends from when they were living at the orphanage, Anton and Jefri, also came with their wives.

The families intend to spend the night to pay their respects to those who have cared for them since childhood. They thought it would be a peaceful night. They were wrong.

The guests have strange experiences. Some are terrorised by the things they fear the most. Meanwhile, the children begin to see a ghostly crippled woman. Victims began to fall, one by one from them. Either lost or dead.

Someone wants them dead. She has a grudge. She was created by the sins of the orphans who formed her into the Queen of Black Magic!
