New Trailer for Indonesian Horror Film ‘Danur’
It was a slow week for new trailers, so here’s the one from Indonesia’s market that has everything you need. Awi Suryadi, a director of the clown horror Badoet, is back for another tear around the genre with supernatural horror flick Danur.
Danur (the title reportedly translates to “corpse juice”) stars Sareefa Daanish of Mo Brother‘s Macabre fame. Based on Risa Saraswati’s best selling novel “Gerbang Dialog Danur,” the film is gearing up for a March theatrical release in Indonesia. No release date has been revealed for the US, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for more news on this front.
Check out the full theatrical trailer below, with English subtitles included.

So Little Risa is spending her school holiday mostly alone in her grandmother’s big house. When her mother misses her 8th birthday, Little Risa wishes for a friend. As soon as she blows the candle, she hears a little boy singing…
That night, Little Risa meets three little Dutch boys playing hide-and-seek in her grandmother’s closet. They introduce themselves as Peter, William and Janshen. Her wish for a friend has been granted threefold. She doesn’t care that her mother can’t seem to see her new friends, their friendship is real to her. Until one night her mother comes home with a paranormal and he opens her inner eye… Little Risa finally sees her friends in their true form.
