Khurafat [Mysticism] (2011) Malaysian Graphic Thriller
Khurafat [Mysticism] (2011) Malaysian Graphic Thriller

original Malaysian title: KHURAFAT [Mysticism]

director: Syamsui Yusof
starring: Shamsul Yusof · Liyana Jasmay · Sabrina Ali


Johan, a young man working as a hospital assistant, has recently married Aishah. The newlyweds lead a very peaceful life, but it does not last long. They are soon harassed by haunting, supernatural attacks. Despite various attempts to stop the disturbances, they continue... especially the presence of a mysterious old woman coupled with the sudden, jarring appearance of the ghost of Johan's jealous former girlfriend, Anna.

In the fright department, this one goes further than most Malaysian films. Usually they get bogged down in cultural religious ideology [e.g., the big horror hit MUNAFIK with no scenes of physical contact between different genders because such action is forbidden in their Islamic culture]. Some of the younger directors are willing to break the taboos, most notably Ryon Lee (HAUNTED HOTEL), Jeffery Chiang (BUYER BEWARE) and - of course - Syamsui Yusof, the filmmaker here.
