DreadOut is the film adaptation of an Indonesian survival horror video game of the same title from developer company Digital Happiness Bandung. Released in 2014, the game has gained international fame after YouTuber PewDiePie gave it a positive review.

The event itself was attended by cast members and producers, but director Kimo Stamboel was absent. The official poster and trailer for the movie were showcased in the event.

DreadOut tells the story of a group of high school students who explore an empty apartment for social media fame. One of the students accidentally opens a mysterious portal that awakens a supernatural being that later drags them to hell.

Headshot director Kimo Stamboel helms the project. “The story is a prequel to the game, but we maintained the scariness from the game,” Kimo said on a statement.

The cast includes Caitlin Halderman, Jefri Nichol, Ciccio Manassero, Marsha Aruan, Susan Sameh, Irsyadillah, Mike Lucock, Hannah Al Rashid, Miller Khan and Salvita Decorte. 

Producer Edwin Nazir said the movie would be marketed internationally. “We are collaborating with Korea’s CJ Entertainment for international success,” Edwin said.

DreadOut is scheduled to hit theaters on Jan. 3, 2019. (iru/kes)
