Mitos / Myth

Synopsis: In the hope of solving an old murder case, an inspector finds himself with a man who is obsessed with a mythical oilman who he blames for his wife’s death.

Director: Nazmi Suhaimi
Is a screenwriter and filmmaker from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  He aspires to make more horror/thriller genre films and hopes to share them with the world.  His inspiration comes mainly from films by Ridley Scott (Alien, Prometheus), James Cameron (Aliens, The Terminator), John Carpenter (The Thing, Escape from New York) and Gareth Evans (The Raid, Gangs of London).

Director’s Statement
All my life I have been making no budget films, shooting with my own camera or phone, with my friends. This was the first time for me to make a film with a proper production crew and I hope this film will tell you my interpretation of a Malay folklore story about a mythical creature we call "Orang Minyak" or in translation ‘The Oilman’. I hope to share this Southeast Asian Malay horror film to film festivals around the world.
