Review Indonesian Horror Movie: Sebelum Iblis Menjemput

Synopsis: Alfie ( Chelsea Islan ) have a dark life because her mother died with mysterious way and her father, Lesmana ( Ray Sahetapy ) married again with Laksmi ( Karina Suwandi ) who already have two child named Maya ( Pevita Pearce ) and Ruben ( Samo Rafael ). Alfie is not close to her father and knowing her father already bankrupt and dying with mysterious disease.

Alfie visit an old house, this house is the family house. This old house already abandoned but Alfie must visit this place to know the dark secret of her father disease.

This movie is a little bit different from other Indonesia horror movie. Not like the other who always take in dark place with scary sound. This movie is focusing on the story. Timo as a producer even dare to show the faces of the demons clearly. Jump scare also minim and we must appreciate it. Story plot of this movie was great, there a little disgusting scene in this movie, but it make Sebelum iblis Menjemput more scary.

When comparing this movie with Hereditary, maybe Hereditary still win. But for Indonesia horror movie, Sebelum Iblis Menjemput was great, seriously ! But there is one bad side from Sebelum Iblis Menjemput, it’s about the detail, for example, when Alfie step mother can’t die even hitted by a axe, why she can die just with a small flashlight ? If the director can fix this thing, maybe Sebelum Iblis Menjemput can be a great movie. So we rate this movie 7/10.
