On the home stretch, people! We bring in the new year with the final part of the epic-ish discussion on horror films. In this episode, we finally land in Malaysia, and discuss pretty everything we could think of under the sun, from P. Ramlee’s own attempts at the genre to more contemporary offerings by Syamsul Yusof and gang. We hope you guys had a good time celebrating the new year, so here’s to a resolution from our side: more of the same from the world’s only Bahasa Malaysia film podcast!
- Key films of the modern-day Malaysian horror include ‘Pontianak Harum Sundal Malam’, ‘Dukun’, ‘Jangan Pandan Belakang’ and ‘Khurafat’
- Rise of Islamism not just limited to the 1970s…
- Friend of the show Dr Norman wrote on horror films during Mahathir Mohamad’s administration
- We take a closer look at this paper on Malaysian horror
- We did some of our own analysis based on figures from FINAS, which has the more updated stats, possibly skewering our own research at the time of recording
