WebTVAsia, together with My Way Pictures and Filmforce Studio, announced Malaysia’s most anticipated supernatural thriller film of 2023, Pulau. The movie set to be released on 9 March 2023 nationwide, tells a story of an exotic dream holiday turned into a nightmare with chilling mystic encounters and a bloodthirsty monster bent on revenge.
Horror-film fanatics can expect an array of plot twists with the sixth-sense-powered heroine, Amelia Henderson, uncovering the truth long buried by a cursed forbidden love. This WebTVAsia Original breaks new ground as Malaysia’s first truly multi-racial horror movie, starring top trending Gen-Z stars with a combined 35 million digital fans: Amelia Henderson, Alif Satar, Ikmal Amry, Sanjna Suri, Joey Leong, Harris Annuar, Jazmy Juma, Mark O’Dea, Sabronzo, Evie Feroza, Cedric Loo, Pui Yi dan Vikar. The ensemble cast also showcases the multivariate talents of A-list film actors, television personalities, social media stars, beauty queens, and singers.
Fred Chong, Pulau’s creator and producer said, “We are championing a new kind of Malaysian cinema, with the next generation of exciting talent playing roles that bring local legendary tales to life. Veterans Nam Ron and Wan Hanafi Su then lend credible weight as more serious characters. My vision as creator is to realize more unique, taboo-breaking, and social message-driven storytelling to our audiences.”
“Highlighting Malaysia’s beautiful nature and rich culture is also a key consideration why we picked one of the country’s most popular islands as the filming location. There is so much more to share and tell that we already have the sequel script in development. Which island? What legend? That’s a secret we will keep you in suspense!”
