Revenge of the Pontianak
Hell hath no fury like a Malay Mina(h) scorned – and back from the dead. Revenge of the Pontianak reimagines Southeast Asia’s horror icon through a contemporary lens as well as a narrative that provides her side of the story – after all, there are always two sides. The film reveals the origin story of Minah who returns to a small village as a pontianak, seeking vengeance on the man who murdered her years ago. Co-directed with Malaysian actor and director Gavin Yap, this marks Singaporean auteur Glen Goei’s return to the big screen since the release of his 2009 murder mystery The Blue Mansion.
