Screamfestindo 2007

Not for the faint hearted. Ah, finally, another film festival option in Jakarta. The Jakarta International Film Festival, December was already a certain film festival i'm going to attend to, now this, designed to please the horror and disturbing film fans, will be held somewhere in November (28 Nov - 2 Des) 2007. Screamfestindo.

Several movies that definitely on my list, The Orphanage, produced by Guillermo del Toro, it had been said that the film had all the gothic-ness and creepiness no stranger to him, Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door which had been protested since it features a vivid child abuse, and probably Vexille, a Japan anime which said had a thought-provoking story (just like Akira, perhaps). Aside from that, since i planned to bought a 10-film pass ticket, i would probably gone to foreign films (Norwegian and Thailand), and classic horror screenings (The Dentist - if i really have a guts to actually seen it on a big screen. Oh, i would probably skip it anyway -, and Re-Animator - i've never seen it, so it would probably a treat, although of course, like The Dentist, the film was more inline with the word 'disturbing' rather than 'terrifying'. Ah, we'll see about that).

Again, not for the faint hearted.
