Perempuan Tanah Jahanam [Movie Review] | When I read the rave reviews online and from Rollo in particular, I decided that I will watch Perempuan Tanah Jahanam, with friends or on my own, I don't mind.

Perempuan Tanah Jahanam, Horror, Joko Anwar, Mystery, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM,
Maya, a toll-girl was almost killed by a guy who has been stalking her for weeks. He managed to cut her thighs and mentioned 'We don't want whatever your family has left behind in our village. It will all end with your death'. As he raised the machete, the policemen gunned him down and he was killed on the spot.

Maya and her friend Dini quit their jobs and opened a clothes kiosk at an almost empty mall. In the toilet, Maya realized that the cut is bleeding and somehow, she managed to pull a piece of paper from the cut (how in the world did that paper last all this while?). It was written in a language that she didn't understand, so just like any other millennial, she took a picture of the paper.

Maya told Dini that she wanted to visit her birthplace after she has confronted her aunt about her history. Her aunt gave her a picture of a family of three standing in front of a huge house. And the idea of having claimed the family house made Maya wanted to visit there and perhaps sell the house so that she could turn her life around. Dini insisted on accompanying her.

It was midnight and the girls were still traveling on the bus. Maya met a linguistics professor who told her that writings are in the primitive Javanese language and it is a spell to ward off evil spirits, cast by an evil witch. And then she saw three little girls standing on the roadside and she wondered 'why are those girls still out at 1 in the morning?'

FACT: It was mentioned that the three little girls standing beside the road were not a part of the movie - it was really an actual eerie recording and later put inside the film.

When the bus stop, the girls traveled to the village and past a huge house that was old and empty. Wanting to see the village head and imposing as university students researching for their final year projects on shadow puppets, they were told by an old lady to come the day after. The girls decided to crash at the old house. And Maya started to see and hear things. But she is one brave girl - not believing in ghost whatsoever.

Maya realized that there has been two deaths just in two days that they were there. When Dini went missing, Maya discovered a grim secret about the village that somehow related to her and the old house.

Who is Maya? 
And who and where is she in the history of the village and the old house?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 My friends and I were having heart attacks right from the movie get-go. The movie was directed beautifully to keep one on one's toes - and all of us were the ones that were screaming in the cinema. Not so much jumpscare but believe me, the moments are really scary!

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 I love that most of the scripts are in Javanese - no need to dub a foreign movie. That's why the subtitle exists. The cast is great!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right friends.
