“An above-average entry in the trend of Indonesian one-word-title horror.” DanielDokter.com

“Too ‘arthouse’ for local mainstream horror fans, which is not a bad thing at all. I can’t recall the last time I enjoy a horror this much without getting scared and praise the decent cinematography and music […] Also, the casting strengthens the believability.” Jakarta Cinema Club
