The official trailer for Joko Anwar's highly anticipated horror film Perempuan Tanah Jahanam (Woman of the Cursed Land) was finally released on Monday.
The trailer opens with a conversation between Maya (Tara Basro) and Dini (Marissa Anita), where the former shared her plans of traveling for a week to her parents' hometown as she was tipped that she'd probably inherit something from them. Scenes in the 1-minute 46-second video show the two women departing on a bus and arriving at a creepy house in a remote village, stumbling upon a children's graveyard and two people carrying sharp objects staring at them in a strange way. And later two men were seen throwing away something in a bucket that looked a lot like blood.
The trailer becomes more terrifying afterward, which includes Maya witnessing something that horrifies her deeply, Dini being captured and tied up upside down and Nyi Misni (Christine Hakim), the legendary actress who has never acted in a horror movie before, creepily saying, "You are a mistake that I must erase."
Backed with nightmarish sounds, the scenes look promising enough and many could be found commenting on the video about their excitement to watch the flick.
Perempuan Tanah Jahanam is set to premiere in local cinemas on Oct. 17. (kes)
