A review of "Tiran Mati Di Ranjang" starring Dewi Persik and Indra Bruggman.
At Bioskop Slipi watched a genuinely horrific horror movie, "Tiran (Mati di Ranjang)", starring the delightful Dewi Persik as well as Indra Bruggman.
Although it succumbed to the Indonesian insistence on sticking in slap-stick interludes, the story-line was kept intact.
Briefly, a pregnant lady was left to her still-born (and herself doomed) fate, because her man was acting the Jakarta Sucker with a prostitute in his boarding house. He returned too late, chopped up the corpse and disposed of the bits in a suitcase - nice chap!
As you'd expect, there are thus two restless spirits on the prowl, and their vengeance focuses on the mattress she and the babe met their fate on. Hence the title, Tiran (Mati di Ranjang) Dewi and Indra Bruggman buy the thing, and inevitably our heroine is possessed and mayhem ensues.
The gory scenes seem unclipped whereas the sexy scenes are fairly obviously subject to meddling, but you know what's going on and Dewi is pretty scary, but still pretty, as she goes about her ghastly ghostly business.
Much better than Jupe's current movie, "Te Rekam", and this would make a good launching pad if she listens to my calls for her to exorcise the dead hand of the current political establishment!
