Hong Kong’s Good Move Picks up Brace of Indonesian Horrors1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Hong Kong-based sales agency Good Move Media has picked up international rights to two Indonesian horror films – Death Knot and The Portrait Of A Nightmare – as it builds up its slate of Southeast Asian titles.
Both titles are produced by Indonesia’s Matta Cinema, founded by director Ismail Basbeth and actor-producer Cornelio Sunny to produce “alternative films for a global audience by working with artistic and creative directors”.
The Portrait Of A Nightmare, directed by Basbeth, follows a woman who has found refuge with a street painter, with whom she has a link through dreams. When the subconscious starts to emerge in real life, they seek the help of a local shaman to venture into the dreamscape to kill the creature haunting them.
