Joko Anwar Unveils SATAN'S SLAVES
Indonesian helmer Joko Anwar (The Forbidden Door, Modus Anomali) has recently wrapped production on his sixth feature film and after a long history of embracing the trappings of genre film Anwar is going full bore into horror with this one.
With his latest effort Anwar has tackled a remake of 1980 Indonesian cult horror title Pengabdi Setan, or Satan's Slaves. If the reputation of the original is to be believed it's a crazy one - one that has drawn comparisons to Don Cascarelli's Phantasm over the years - and one that Anwar has long considered a favorite. If you want a taste of the original I'm including the Japanese trailer for it below along with the above image, which is the first still from the Anwar remake.
