Having just lost her husband, Rini’s grief increases when Auntie, who raised her, dies. While returning to the village to mourn, Rini’s only child, Hafiz, goes missing and is found unconscious in the middle of the forest…

” …this film is bolder to show a more sinister appearance. The supernatural creatures that appear in this film are shown to be more sadistic, more manipulative, more determined to hurt than in the first film. To conquer it is not enough with one reading of the verse of the chair. The CGI used is also somewhat better, not ridiculous.” Notes on Hobbies [translated from Indonesian]

“The choice of director Guntur makes this film even more beautiful in providing a production design. The rural landscape combined with the remote village location in the mountains and CGI provides a well-developed sense of horror […] Some scenes are silent without jump scares, instead, inducing goosebumps. However, if you don’t concentrate when watching, the ending of this film will feel confusing…” Voi
