Are you a fan of the evil clown horror? If you love Pennywise and clown chills, check out this evil new clown on the block. Sure, the titles are not in English, but the language of terror is universal...
Badoet is the new freaky clown horror from Indonesia, so it'll have an interesting new angle to add to a genre mostly fuelled by enthusiastic '80s/'90s American offerings.
Here's the plot synopsis for Badoet:
Tragedy strikes a close-knit government housing project complex in Jakarta when three children are found mysteriously dead. Suspecting foul play, three tenants decide to investigate: Donald (Daniel Topan), a smart college senior with a temper; FAarel (Christoffer Nelwan), Donald's socially awkward yet kind-hearted cousin, and Kayla (Aurelie Moeremans), Donald's tomboy college mate.
The entity responsible for the heinous deaths is revealed after our heroes find drawings of a clown made by all the victims, and, later, by VINO (Fernandito Raditya), the 9-year-old son of feisty landlady RAISA (Ratu Felisha)—who clearly now is in danger. With help from the eccentric indigo siblings NIKKI (Tiara Westlake) and ROCKY (Marcel Chandrawinata), our heroes do their best to save the boy.
As Donald and his friends begin their attempt, terror starts to mount. Our heroes soon realize that they are facing a force that disguises its darkness through laughter—a force so menacing, it will not hesitate to take lives to get what it wants: immortality.
