Ferdi, Gita, Gombal, and Sani, have always been curious about ghosts. They visit many haunted places, but they have not found what they are looking for until they hear about Angkerbatu. To summon spirits, Sani secretly plays with a jelangkung (a traditional puppet game that is similar to the ouija board, and it is used to call restless souls). This film highlights stunning cinematography, editing and sound editing to enhance the fear factor.
This film was made with digital video. It premièred and screened in only one theater, also on digital format. Due to its success, the producers later on made several 35 mm prints for it to screen in several cinemas. This was an Indonesian box-office hit. It achieved 748,003 admissions, just in the Jabotabek (Jakarta, Bogor, Tangerang, Bekasi) area only, from the period of October 2001 - January 2002.
