“In order to make profits, we cannot only distribute [the film] in this country. Hence, we will join a competition, but I cannot say what it is [right now],” Abimana said.

Premiering on Aug. 9, Sebelum Iblis Menjemput follows Alfie, who is seeking answers to what really happened to her father, Lesmana (Ray Sahetapy), in an old villa. Together with Maya (Pevita Pearce), the girls later realize that the villa hosts a dark secret. (wir/kes)
