2009's "Macabre" is one of my favorite horror films of the last twenty years, and an Indonesian genre effort I would hold up alongside "The Raid." Director Timo Tjahjanto's latest too often feels like a weak imitation of his earlier work - despite some effective moments (a face-ripping demon, a bone-breaking voodoo doll), its scares are largely CG-assisted reproductions of Sam Raimi and J-Horror's cliches.
Film ini sebenarnya bagus, tapi jalan cerita kadang terlalu cepat, dan kadang terlalu lama. Bagi orang yang suka horor tapi sering tutup mata seperti saya (lol), akan sering ketinggalan sama jalan ceritanya. Tapi film horor Indonesia sudah mulai bagus! nice
It used too many references from Hollywood, Asian & B horrors. So the evils are Hollywood scary sadistic, Asian creepy mysterious, and B rate gory hideous at the same time; I wasn't sure which kind of fear I had to go into.
It was good and intense to watch per scene, but it cannot be enjoyed as film as a whole.
SEBELUM IBLIS MENJEMPUT is one of the great Indonesian horror movie in the recent years (along with Joko Anwar's PENGABDI SETAN). Mr. Timo Tjahjanto knew how to scare his audience. He succeed to build a nice set-up in his storytelling. It feels great, because I could feel sympathy to its characters. Chelsea Islan was great. She got some Sarah Connor & Ellen Ripley vibes in her. Pevita Pearce's acting is spectacular!
