[Malaysian Movie] Munafik
While Dukun is only loosely based on the spine-chilling murderer Mona Fandey, the film had Malaysians shivering with anticipation, with horror movie buffs more than eager to catch the controversial movie.
The movie tells the story of Meriam, a beautiful prima donna who captivated the hearts of many when she was still alive. However, she was stabbed in the stomach while pregnant, and since then, has turned into a restless spirit to torment those who killed her.
Seru (2011) is a familiar story of a production crew filming a horror movie, then gets haunted in return. In this case, the star-studded cast comprising Nora Danish, Awal Ashaari, and more, play a production crew who experience creepy disturbances in the midst of their movie shoot.

Beginning with a Quran passage about Satan, Roh is a disquieting rural Malaysian horror tale rooted in folklore and superstitions that explores the role of the devil in the context of a religious and spiritual society.

It would be better if both fans and naysayers alike take the lesson of the movie to heart and improve their faith, as opposed to moral policing and criticizing each other. Only then will the purpose of the film be fulfilled and its box office success more justified.
It was reported that an individual, Muhammad Izwan Shah, had shared the movie on his Facebook and Instagram account. The uploaded movie was then shared across multiple sites for free viewing. This was an offence under Section 4(1) of the Copyright Act 1987.

Horror films have a special place in audiences' hearts around the world. In Hollywood, characters like Freddy Krueger and Ghostface are synonymous with the genre. Meanwhile, Southeast Asia's horror icons are homegrown ghosts and monsters, from vengeful spirits to the undead fully wrapped in white cloth. The most terrifying and successful horror movies from Southeast Asia typically dive into folklore, making the thrills much closer to home for locals and delivering inimitable dread for worldwide audiences.
Recently, the cinema of Southeast Asia has witnessed an emergence of great, popular scary movies. Local horror films in Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia have set box office records, beating major Hollywood releases. This only solidifies the genre as arguably the most popular in the region. Films like Joko Anwar's Impetigoreand Emir Ezwan's Soulhave been officially submitted to the Academy Awards, cementing the importance of horror in Southeast Asia. With streaming services like Netflix and Shudder acquiring more international films, it has never been easier to watch these scare-fests at home in time for Halloween.
And like Pontianak Harum Sundal Malam, Munafik also became a sort of Malaysian horror movie franchise, with sequels Munafik 2 (2018) and Munafik 3 (to be released in 2020). Director Syamsul Yusof claims that he always wanted to make Munafik into a trilogy ever since he created the first film in 2016.
Although Dukun was said to be based off a true to life murder case, the story takes creative liberties with how it tells it. Many think of Dukun as a lost treasure, a movie that was preserved over time and has aged like fine wine.
