SYNOPSIS

Cut off from civilisation, a single mother puts her children on high alert when they bring home a young girl caked in clay. She tells of spirits and spirit hunters, but these are not mere superstitions. As more strangers show up on her doorstep, she quickly finds another reason to fear the forest.

Set in an unknown forest in an unknown time, Soul is a frighteningly disorienting experience. Like the family under siege from the spirits, viewers are thrown headfirst into the thick of rural Malaysian mysticism. In the vein of Eerie (2018), Satan’s Slaves (2017) and the Munafik series (2016-2018), Soul crosses the sinister with the spiritual, putting a distinctly Southeast Asian twist on the cabin-in-the-woods trope.
