A big breakthrough for Indonesia's Horror Movie Industry
Actually this is a remake from a movie with the same title, "Pengabdi Setan", back in 1980. As the director, Joko Anwar successfully make this movie as a great breakthrough for Indonesia's horror movie industry. Great cinematography, great story line, great plot twist and Joko Anwar success in bringing back the 1980's atmospheres to the movie (because the movie setting is Indonesia at 1980's). Joko Anwar is not just rely on jump scares, but he's also managed this movie as creepy as hell.
The movie was begin with the mother who gets mysterious illness, so the entire family, the father, Rini, Toni, Bondi, and Ian was struggle and need more money for the medicine. After the mother's dead, their father decided to go to the city for a job to fulfill their needs and leaving the kids in the house. That's when the terror begins.
Rini, Toni, Bondi and Ian can be called as the main characters of this movie. But Rini, can be the leader, because she's the oldest daughter of the family and played a big parts of the movie.
The story is all about how the family stick together and tells their mother who haunted them for not to take one of their siblings, or not to take all of them.
Overall, this is the best Indonesia's horror movie of all time. And it can be one of "must watch" movie list for horror movie lovers. It will never disappoint you!
