However, this time, let’s get nostalgic with a row of really scary Indonesian horror films from the 2000s. Guaranteed the titles below will make Beauties shudder!
1. Kuntilanak Trilogy

The trilogy films Kuntilanak 1 in 2006, Kuntilanak 2 in 2007, and Kuntilanak 3 in 2008 really present a scary and mysterious atmosphere. The composition of the story and the level of spookiness is just right so it can keep the audience curious until the end of the film.
Kuntilanak tells the story of Samantha or often called Sam, who accidentally summoned Kuntilanak to take revenge on the people who hurt her.
At first, Sam could control it, but over time the darkness ‘devoured’ him. Sam’s struggle from the start to get out of the curse is beautifully told in these three films. Beauties who want to watch it can visit Prime Video.
2. Sacred 1

The film Keramat, which was released in 2009, also provides maximum tension for the audience. Tells about a film crew who visited Jogja for shooting purposes.
At first everything was fine until the female lead actress in the film Keramat fell into a trance and disappeared. The rest of the crew are trying to find him and they have to enter another dimension so they can help his friend.
Another dimension is filled with ghosts of various kinds and strange events that make the audience feel uncomfortable. To prove how scary it is, Beauties can watch the film Keramat 1 on Netflix.
3. Jailangkung 2001 (The Uninvited)

The 2001 film Jailangkung was a huge success in its time. Just like the title, this film tells about the urban legend of the summoning of Jailangkung.
A group of people who wanted to experience real horror came to a village in West Java called Angkerbatu where it was rumored that there were many supernatural incidents there. However, when they left, nothing supernatural happened.
Until one of them, named Soni, played with the Jailangkung doll in an unmarked grave. They all experienced a lot of supernatural disturbances when they arrived in Newsdelivers.com.
According to the paranormal, they had to return to Angkerbatu village and uproot their Jailangkung in the nameless grave. A journey full of horror begins here.
4. Pocong 2

Aired in the same year as his friend, Kuntilanak, the 2006 film Pocong 2 is also a gripping and scary film. Having a story plot that is actually quite simple, namely a haunted apartment, makes this film easier to digest.
This film really makes the audience focused and scared. The ending was truly unexpected, so it’s a must watch for beauties who like horror.
Fun fact: this film is a sequel film that does not have the first film. There was supposed to be a film Pocong 1 which had finished filming in 2005 but failed to be broadcast because it didn’t pass the censorship.
5. Ghost Island

This film, which was released in 2007, presents an iconic ghost that just seeing it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It started with young men and women who wanted to go on holiday to Bunaken by cruise ship instead turning towards a resort on a small island called Madara.
At first, the atmosphere was very pleasant, but gradually it turned strange. Ghost terror begins to occur and targets the group of young people one by one.
What will happen to them after this? Beauties can watch it live legally on Prime Video.
That’s an Indonesian horror film from the 2000s that is scary and gives you goosebumps when you re-watch it. Don’t forget to invite friends when watching it, OK!
