A huge hit in Indonesia and throughout South East Asia, Joko Anwar's remake of the cult horror 'Pengabdi Setan' from 1982 delivers in both atmospheric chills and full-on horror as a family discovers that their bedridden matriarch, a once successful singer and main breadwinner is connected to a satanic cult. The gorgeous late 1970s/early 1980s Italian style art direction giving a giallo feel to the film, this inspired Indonesian ghost story has an identity all its own.

Curated by Hannah Al-Rashid.
