Virgin Ghost Rope (2008) Dewi Perssik | Indonesia Horror
original Indonesian title TALI POCONG PERAWAN
[Virgin Ghost Rope]
starring Dewi Perssik · Ramon Y. Tungka · Ibnu Jamil ·
Cathrine Wilson · Zora Vidyanata
film was loosely inspired by the Thai hit SHUTTER.
Ramon Y. Tungka plays Nino, a young voyeuristic slacker who spends his
life on the computer or - sometimes - masturbating as he spies [through
a hole in the wall] on his brother Aldo (Ibnu Jamil) and girlfriend
Virnie (Dewi Perssik). In reality, he is obsessed with Virnie and has
convinced himself that he's in love with her. Nino turns to black magic
to steal the girl away from his brother. Traditionally, the burial shroud
of a female virgin contains powerful magic, capable of granting any
wish for the lovelorn. So, Nino breaks into city morgue and steals the
shroud from a recently deceased virgin. He doesn't realize until too
late that this particular shroud has deadly ju-ju because the young
woman had committed suicide.
pop singer Dewi Perssik made her film debut with this movie in 2008.
Its popularity [and her performance] immediately thrust Dewi into a
parade of B-productions with less-than-stellar results (DEMON
MERMAID GHOST, GHOST
OF THE VIRGIN GIRLFRIEND, et al). She finally hit paydirt
again with Irwn Ibon Baihaki's mean-spirited shocker CRAWLING
FROM THE MUD in 2013.
