Dukun Beranak (1977)
Agus throws his wife, Nyi Anis, out of the house, while she is pregnant. Vengeful, she seeks the help of Mak Onah, an expert in black magic. Mak Onah is willing to make Agus love Anis again, but on the condition that she sacrifices a baby at every full moon for six times. Her first sacrifice is her own baby. So Anis turns into an ugly Amundari before transforming into the beautiful Nyi Mayang. For the sacrifices, she is also given skills as a midwife. After three sacrifices, Anis wants to remove the black magic as she has already won Agus back. But Mak Onah dies. So Anis, who is now Nyi Mayang, cannot return. The villagers defeat Mak Onah with prayers, and they also defeat Nyi Mayang. The film was a collaboration with the West Java local government to increase interest in tourism, hence the film features traditional Sundanese music and dances. However, the story tends to strengthen the belief in superstition.
