Ranu decides to move into the house of his deceased parents with three of his friends, Dicky, Ocha and Poppy - much to the dismay of his grandmother (Suzzanna) and despite the many warnings he received in the form of dreams, dreams that also involve an old ambulance ... just like the one the friends find outside of the house. Once the four youngsters have moved into the house, they all have weird dreams and visions of ghosts ... all but Dicky, who repeatedly sees a super sexy girl crossing his way, and he doesn't wonder one bit how she got into the house.

Eventually, Ranu learns about the secret of his parents' death from his grandma when he tells her about his ghostly visions: Turns out his father dabbled into the supernatural when Ranu was just a child, and eventually, the supernatural retaliated and Ranu's family found itself on the run from a ghost. Dad just had the good judgement to drop little Ranu at his grandmother, then he and company got into a car accident, a non-fatal one though. In an ambulance, they were taken to the next hospital, but then the ambulance was attacked by the ghosts and everybody died ... and of course, it's the very same ambulance Ranu and friends have found in front of the house ...

Ranu wants to go and warn the others, but by that time, Dicky has already fallen prey to the mysterious sexy girl, who was of course the ghost in disguise, and she has possessed him ... and now he has taken the ambulance and is going to university to attack and kill Ocha. Ranu tries to warn her, but it's too late.

In the finale, all hell breaks loose over Ranu, his girlfriend Fiona he's just been reunited with, Poppy and Dicky, who has just awakened from his possession but is soon killed off, but just in time, grandma has set into motion a ceremony to exorcise the ghost, and finally, that saves the day.

 

Despite its title that seems to promise high camp, this is by and large just a by-the-numbers teen-horrorfilm of the slasher variety with very little to set it apart from any number of similar films, but at least the shocks are carefully set and at times quite effective (even if not exactly innovative). Indonesian horror queen Suzzanna (in her comeback film) might be quite good as the grandma, but the teen cast is rather bland - as bland as their characters, actually, which of course seems to be almost symptomatic for this kind of movie. The real letdown though is the finale, which starts and ends out of nowhere, features little in terms of shock, and doesn't feature any kind of real resolution to the story.

Still, there are far worse genre films around.
