” …with four films all of which were only able to come with story quality ranging from mediocre to bad, it seems that a stronger improvement is needed to make Kuntilanak able to maintain its audience in the future. Very disappointing.” 2 out of 5, Amir at the Movies
“The action scenes that featured the battles of the good teachers and sects present in the third round were executed too simply […] I also questioned the logic of the script when in the “ritual” scene, the procession was too easily distracted. Even though the fantasy concept and the story are full of holes, this film doesn’t disappoint thanks to the line-up of the cast…” 5 out of 10, Notes on Hobbies
“It’s hard to believe that this film isn’t actually a parody of another film with a similar theme that comes out convincingly. The horror elements are not explored, while the fantasy side is presented in a less mature way. In the end, despite having the potential to be more, Kuntilanak 3 is more likely to appear ridiculous than stunning.” 2 out of 5, Tales from Motion Sickness
“The film side-lines two of the kids and introduces some new friends at the school but really did nothing within the narrative to build a friendship […] the plot relied on a massive suspension of disbelief […] Not a great ending to the series, but at least we got actual vampirism.” 3.5 out of 10, Taliesin Meets the Vampires
Kuntilanak 3 was released in Indonesia and Singapore on April 30, 2022.
