Synopsis

Alisa, formerly a sex worker, marries the man she loved and eagerly anticipates a happy life. However, she falls victim to a model agency scam and is sexually assaulted. Alisa becomes pregnant and is denied an abortion by the doctor. She decides to abort the baby herself and dies from exsanguination. Turning into a vengeful spirit, she seeks revenge on those who had humiliated her.

Sundelbolong is more than just a revenge horror film, highlighting the issues surrounding the autonomy of the female body. Suzzana’s powerful performance as a vengeful spirit offers a representation of a goddess that heroises and demonises the female character, establishing a new set of rules governed by women.
