Ular [Snakes] (2013) The First Malaysian Monster Movie
Ular [Snakes] (2013) The First Malaysian Monster Movie

original Malaysian title ULAR [Snakes]

director: Jason Chong and Lin Zhen Zhao
starring: Lisa Surihani
Yusry Abd Halim Zarina Anjolie Harun Salim Bachik

A group of lucky lottery winners get a dream vacation at an idyllic island resort, only to be trapped on an island infested with deadly snakes.

This is the first Malaysian monster film. But it will probably be remembered more for the inclusion of a gay couple in its list of characters... also a first in Malaysian cinema. Mainstream motion pictures in that country usually 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 the Islamic culture], so the idea of a gay couple here IS a big deal. And proof again that things are changing quickly in that part of the world. Some of the younger directors are breaking the cultural taboos, most notably Jeffrey Chiang (BUYER BEWARE), Ryon Lee (HAUNTED HOTEL), and Syamsui Yusof (KHURAFAT, Mysticism).

A Malaysian film with optional English subtitles; widescreen, (76 min.),
DVD encoded for WORLD FORMAT NTSC, playable on any American machine.
