Review Tumbal Kanjeng Iblis

Before this movie was released, through the official Instagram account ‘Tumbal Kanjeng Devil’ shared information about heretical cults whose existence is close to us. In fact, not only in Indonesia, there are also many sects abroad with many followers.

Tumbal Kanjeng Iblis doesn’t necessarily just present rituals but also spice up a heartwarming family movie. Struggle, sacrifice and willingness to give up are also important points in this film. The director wants to express any moral message that feels close to the community.

One of them is children who migrate to other people’s cities to study and work. Regarded as boarding children, they are suitable targets for sacrifice or even influence to want to join their cult.

Full of thrilling scenes

Coward? Don’t watch alone! The atmosphere throughout the movie is really tense, the placement of the jumpscare has the right feeling to bring a sense of suspense from scene to scene. Starting from the very beginning to the end, everything seemed appealing. As if ready to bring a feeling of fear to the audience.

Starting from the long scenes to the details, it is presented with great care so that it presents a feeling of fear and horror. Furthermore, players unite in animating and building relationships between the characters they play.

Not only did the main cast perform well, the supporting actors also performed equally well.

Many puzzles are given, making the audience have to follow a sequence and focus throughout as the film begins. Otherwise, you will miss important details that can be used as clues to the next scene.

Intuitive assistance and skillful scoring

Although Kanjeng Devil’s form is not in human form, that alias is just a CGI visual effect. However, his presence still evoked feelings of anxiety in the spectators who were waiting for him to arrive while the ceremony was taking place.

The images provided really support the plot shown, moreover, the scores used also reinforce the creepy nuance being presented. Shooting low, detailed, wide and medium angles looks neat and pleasant enough for long viewing.

Although some scenes will make the audience close their eyes at the same time. The appearance of the players is also taken care of, such as the external wounds that look terrible with the help of blood and peeled skin creating hideous maggots.

Visuals and scores are very important in a movie, especially a horror movie. Why is that, because the two must unite to strengthen the story presented, so that it brings a nuance of mystery with terrifying horror.
