The Crossbreed (2018) full movie subtitle Indonesia

The Crossbreed merupakan film bergenre horor thriller. Film ini disutradarai dan ditulis oleh Biray Dalkiran. Ide cerita The Crossbreed menggabungkan cerita mistis dengan keagamaan dan kepercayaan.

The Crossbreed menceritakan tentang sepasang kekasih Amy (Angela Durazo) dan John (Nathan Schellerup) yang bekerja sebagai seorang jurnalis. Mereka ditugaskan meliput suatu tempat yang memiliki cerita tentang legenda crossbreed atau anak keturunan, dalam cerita ini merupakan anak keturunan iblis.

The Crossbreed
Sebelum mereka berangkat ke tempat tersebut, Amy memeriksa dirinya yang sedang hamil anak kembar dengan usia janin 14 minggu. Bukannya senang, ia malah berniat mengaborsi janinnya. Dokter yang memeriksanya tentu keberatan dengan niat Amy. Namun Rose (Katy Bentz), teman Amy, justru malah membantu niat Amy mengaborsi janin tertsebut.

Tanpa sepengetahuan John, Amy menjalankan aborsi yang dibantu oleh Rose dan teman laki-laki yang mengaku seorang ilmuwan dan dokter hewan. Awalnya Amy ragu melakukan aborsi dengan bantuan seseorang yang bukan ahli di bidangnya. Namun bodohnya Amy, ia terpedaya oleh Rose juga laki-laki tersebut.

John baru mendapatkan kabar dari dokter yang memeriksa Amy bahwa Amy sedang hamil. Ia nampak sangat bahagia akan menjadi seorang ayah.

Setelah Amy melakukan aborsi, hal-hal aneh mulai menghampirinya, dari mimpi buruk sampai hal-hal horor yang muncul di hadapannya. Ia selalu merasa bersalah dan bertanya pada Rose “Apakah Tuhan mengampuniku?”. Dengan enteng Rose menimpali, “Ya, Tuhan maha pengampun.”

Pada saat John dan Amy mendatangi tempat mistis tersebut, Amy masih menyembunyikan apa yang terjadi dan apa yang sudah ia lakukan terhadap janinnya. Ia tidak menceritakan apapun pada John. Sesampainya di tempat yang dituju, mereka bertemu seorang pendeta dan seorang perempuan yang bernama Maria (Malinda farrington), juga seorang laki-laki tua bernama William (Lou Cariffe) yang menceritakan banyak hal tentang asal mula tempat tersebut tentang Lilith, bayi lilith, atau iblis.

Pada Amy, William menceritakan bahwa:

“Lilith dan keluarga Adam berperang, kehancuran darah dan kelahiran, mereka ingin mendominasi dunia. Lalu mereka membuat kesepakatan. Kesepakatan ini bertahan selama berabad-abad. Hanya seorang wanita crossbreed yang bisa melahirkan anak kembar. Itu adalah tanda dari tuhan. Dan hanya ada satu bayi yang cukup kuat untuk bertahan hidup. Tapi tak ada yang tahu bayi yang mana. Iblis menipu semua orang. Lilith merasuki keluarga Adam dan membunuh mereka semua. Iblis mencuci otak wanita-wanita itu membuat mereka membunuh bayi mereka. Iblis menyuruh aborsi. Dan abosri adalah perbuatan jahat.”

Di awal cerita, saya pikir konsep cerita film ini sama dengan film The Lullaby (2018) , yaitu menggabungkan cerita horor dengan ilmu kejiwaan yang ditunjukkan oleh sikap bersalah Amy sebelum dan sesudah melakukan aborsi, tapi ternyata tidak. Cerita film ini menggabungkan hal mistis dengan konsep ketuhanan dan kepercayaan (agama Kristiani dan kitabnya). Legenda crossbreed dihubungkan dengan awal mula kisah munculnya Adam, Hawa, anak keturunan mereka, dan iblis (versi Injil).

Cerita The Crossbreed cukup menarik, namun bukan cerita horor yang menyeramkan. Akhir cerita film ini ternyata mengecoh penonton. Yang saya pikir John adalah laki-laki yang paling baik terhadap Amy dan tak percaya dengan cerita mistis yang disampaikan oleh sang pendeta, Maria, dan William, ternyata ia adalah orang yang berada dibalik aborsi Amy. John mengatur segalanya dengan rapi dari awal sampai akhir bersama Rose, seseorang yang mengaborsi Amy, maria, sang pendeta, dan William. John melakukan hal tersebut pada Amy lantaran Amy adalah wanita keturuan crossbreed dan hamil anak kembar. Ia tahu itu dari kalung yang digunakan Amy.

English Review The Crossbreed 

Religion is a topic that can easily divide people. God and the Devil: do they exist? Is the Bible fact or fiction? If the Devil is real, where is he? What would happen if he walked the earth? The Crossbreed attempts to answer these questions. Presented by Breaking Glass Pictures, The Crossbreed will be available on DVD and VOD as of Tuesday, March 6, 2018.

The Crossbreed still.

Amy (Angela Durazo: Safe House 2016, Fox Seal 2017) has nightmares of demons and babies. She is pregnant with twins but has not yet told her boyfriend, John (Nathan Schellerup in his acting debut), as she is scared and does not want to keep the pregnancy. Her friend Rose (Katy Bentz: This Much 2017, Level Up Norge series) is supportive and willing to help her out, or so it initially seems. After decisions are made, Amy is still conflicted and she continues to have scary nightmares about babies and demons. Guilt weighs heavy on her, but she refuses to reach out and tell her boyfriend what is going on.

As journalists, the couple are sent to a village to investigate the stories of Lilith and Adam’s crossbreed children, as there have been recent attacks and several vandalism incidents of note. John, who claims to be an atheist, blames the strange activity on the local priest, Paul (Danny Winn: Gold 2016, Shot Caller 2017). In fact, John believes that Paul and his sister, Maria (Malinda Farrington: Mr. Oizo: Ham short 2014, Rubberhead TV movie 2014), created the stories to make the town a tourist trap and generate money. Clearly, Amy does not feel the same way and she begins to believe in the legends.

While the couple are investigating the village, strange things begin to happen and Amy’s nightmares begin to intensify. There are rumors that Lilith’s crossbreed is going to give birth to a baby and that baby will be the devil. Although no one in the village is pregnant, or are they? What is really going on in the village and why are Amy’s nightmares more intense here? Is the Devil really coming and, ultimately, who is the crossbreed that will give birth to the world’s destruction?

The Crossbreed still.

The backstory that makes this film possible is a bit confusing. Lilith is said to be Adam’s first wife, a woman who existed before God created Eve, and who is somehow gets mixed up with the Devil himself. Due to this fact, Adam begs God to give him another wife that suits him better, thus the creation of the pure Eve.

Furthermore, Adam has children and so does Lilith and, reportedly, when those two factions procreate together they always have twins; one is good and the other is evil. According to the film, only crossbreeds can have twins. If this is the case and a crossbreed is to give birth to the Devil, why has it not happened yet? Many women give birth to twins and everyone is supposedly a descendant of the first man, Adam. Of course, how does a person really know if they are a descendant of Lilith? Therefore, one must ask: is every set of twins good and evil?

The Crossbreed just throws these things out as facts but does not really explain why or how these things are known, creating a highly confusing and not entirely convincing backstory.

Chemistry is also something that is lacking here. While John and Amy are supposedly deeply in love, the actors interact with each other in a very stiff manner. Yes, Amy is going through some self-imposed trauma, but her character is still supposedly in love with John; though in reality it does not seem like this at all. John is pushy, arrogant, and rude, while Amy is whiny and gullible. The two do not appear as a believable couple, rather more a brother and sister pairing. Ultimately, rooting for either side is near impossible, as neither character is likeable nor do they have any qualities that are even remotely relatable.

The Crossbreed still.

Another major issue with this film is the way it was filmed. There are references to pagan symbols throughout the village, although even when the characters are supposedly standing right in front of them nothing is shown on the screen. It is obvious that the director was trying to give the viewer a sense that the characters were being watched, which was successful. However, saying something is there and not allowing the viewer to actually see it is a major issue throughout this entire production. If you are going to speak of symbology, your viewers need to see that symbology for themselves!

Backstories are important because they set the stage for the action in the film to happen. If one is too confusing and not fleshed-out properly in your script, then nothing that happens will make any sense; just having an interesting idea is not enough to carry a film and neither is having wooden actors. A successful film has a lot of moving parts, and all of them must come together in order to make a solid offering that is believable as well as enjoyable. Sadly, The Crossbreed fails in telling an interesting and cohesive story, and it is because of this that CrypticRock gives The Crossbreed 2 out of 5 stars.
