Little Risa is lonely. Her father is working in a foreign country and her mother is kept busy between taking care of her sick grandmother in the hospital and her job as a public servant.
So, Little Risa is spending her school holiday mostly alone in her grandmother’s big house. When her mother misses her eighth birthday, Little Risa wishes for a friend. As soon as she blows the candle, she hears a little boy singing…
That night, Little Risa meets three little Dutch boys playing hide-and-seek in her grandmother’s closet. They introduce themselves as Peter, William and Janshen. Her wish for a friend has been granted threefold. She doesn’t care that her mother can’t seem to see her new friends, their friendship is real to her.
Until one night her mother comes home with a paranormal and he opens her inner eye… Little Risa finally sees her friends in their true form.
” …Danur actually has the potential to be an impressive horror. Unfortunately, Suryadi’s choice to pack his movie as a cheap horror based on the jump scare presence to scare or shock his audience makes Danur a very disappointing presentation.” Amir Syarif Siregar, At the Movies [translated from Indonesian]
