Irul: Ghost Hotel
Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
A group of ambitious filmmakers, aided by paranormal activity specialists, is headed to the Penang island in Northern Malaysia. Led by their highly-motivated producer Punitah, the crew is eager to investigate the secrets lurking in the infamous deserted hotel Crag, clearly forgetting how these stories usually end. Will the trap set for the evil born out of a decades-old injustice work this time around?
Irul: Ghost Hotel, the first Tamil found footage film made in Malaysia, is a passionate, energetic horror, impressing with a creative use of different video formats and the surprisingly successful special effects. The Crag Hotel, in which the story is set, is an authentic 19th-century building with a rich colonial past. It has been abandoned and slowly decaying for many years, because the islanders believe that… It's haunted.
