Indonesian Horror Queen Suzzanna in Malam Satu Suro

“It could be said that the length and breadth of Indonesian horror queen Suzzanna’s career was, to a certain extent, determined by the number of vengeful female spirits that could be found in Indonesian folklore. Fortunately for her, there were a lot. The Queen of the South Seas, the Snake Queen, the White Alligator Queen: Suzzanna played them all. And then, of course, there is Sundel Bolong, the “Ghost With Hole”. Malam Satu Suro comes along several years after the actress first portrayed that gruesomely perforated ghost in 1982’s Sundel Bolong, and shows signs of its makers — including original Sundel Bolong director and longtime Suzzanna collaborator Sisworo Gautama Putra — making an attempt to shake up the formula a little bit.” More about Malam Satu Suro and Suzzanna at Die, Danger, Die, Die, Kill!
