Director: Arjin Uppal
Cast: Aeril Zafrel, Ruhainies, Ashraf Muslim, Aishah Ilias
My review and thoughts: it is a horror movie which hits close to home as the story is all about cursing someone else for one’s selfishness and that happens a lot in our society where many so called Muslims has turned to the dark arts in the hope of subduing, winning over or just for the sake of jealousy or revenge, and that is “Musyrik”….
“Musyrik” is a name for those Muslims or non- Muslims who worship idols, fire or other entities and do not respect or believe God or Allah is the only one to worship…. And the title of the movie itself means Musyrik, the fires of hell awaits you....
It is also a good reminder and good lesson to those thinking about such things and that dabbling in the dark arts is never a good thing and neither is harming others….
The movie is pretty good and I did kind of enjoy it and you will too if you go with an open mind … the direction and storyline is good and so is the little cliff hanger at the end of the story….
Go watch it, it is definitely better then a lot of Malay movies and it also has a good looking cast Aeril Zafrel, Ruhainies, Aishah Ilias and Ashraf Muslim…..
I would rate this a 7.5/10….
