‘KKN Di Desa Penari’
A terrifying true story revealed by Simpleman
This is the true story of six college students who traveled to a remote village in order to fulfil their duty in the Community Service Program (KKN). Nur, Widya, Ayu, Bima, Anton, and Wahyu had never thought that the village that they visited was home to a cursed entity trapped within the shadows. Pak Prabu, the village head, had warned them not to cross the forbidden gate built in the middle of the forest. The mystical gate might hold the key to the awaiting mystery in the form of a traditional dancer, who soon starts to haunt the group. Each one of them began to witness the strange occurrences. Their CSP slowly turned into chaos, as it seems that the entity took a disliking to the group. It was all confirmed as Nur found out that one of their group did not abide to the village’s most important rule. The terror turns spiraling worse, up to the point where the group asks for the help of the local cleric, Mbah Buyut. Though it all happened too late; and now they’re on the verge of ending their days, trapped forever in the cursed village.
