Verdict on Bayi Ajaib
Bayi Ajaib is the latest Indonesian horror movie centre around a village being haunted. It follows a man that gets rich overnight and finds his family connected to a demon. As his son starts showing evil tendencies and the villagers keep getting harmed.
This one gets to dive into possession and shows the disturbing behaviour of the evil spirit. Nobody in the village is safe from the graphic horrendous nature of the spirit. We get to see each unique and disturbing injury received, some are on their own, others in front of people. Here, we get to dive into a complete mix of disturbing and possession-based horrors. They all work to bring us a movie filled with scares and horrific imagines.

Final Thoughts – Bayi Ajaib is a disturbing, uncomfortable scare filled horror movie.
