SUMPAH PONTIANAK (1958)

English Title: The Curse of Pontianak
Director: B.N. Rao
Runtime: 86 min
Country: Singapore/Malaysia
Language: Malay with English Subtitles
Rating: PG

A dead woman returns as a vampire to protect her daughter. The film deals with female vengeance, and stars the actress Maria Menado, dubbed the “most beautiful woman in Malaya”.

Sumpah Pontianak is the third in a trilogy of pontianak-themed films that capitalised on the local population’s fear for “the most treacherous of vampires”. The original prints of the first two films are regarded to be lost. Zubir Said, who composed Singapore’s national anthem, wrote Sumpah Pontianak’s film score.

ABOUT A FEAR OF MONSTERS

Monsters have entertained and united us through our fear – from the genre defining Orang Minyak to the enduring image of Godzilla tearing through the streets of Tokyo – A Fear of Monsters explores the monsters that have traversed folklores and popular culture to the silver screen.

Featuring Asian horror films from the 1950s – 2000s, this programme is a cinematic continuation of AFA’s exhibition, State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
