Over The Top Teaser For Malaysian Horror PENANGGAL
Upcoming Malaysian horror effort Penanggal is big! It's terrifying! It's dramatic! And we know this because it's got MUSIC! But the thing is, once you get over the wildly over the top presentation the footage actually looks reasonably good as well.
For the uninitiated, the penanggal myth is a sort of Faustian trade off in which a young woman obtains beauty or power through the use of black magic but, in return, becomes cursed. There are many variants out there but the most common features the penanggal's head detaching and floating with the entrails dangling below. Take a look at the teaser below.A naïve girl inadvertently inherits the penanggal curse from her guardian and wants desperately to be rid of it, until she starts tasting the power the penanggal accords to her, an otherwise ugly and simple girl with no chance at love or power in her life.
