A haunted family in financial despair, living in a house right next to the graveyard. Ghosts, demons, a pact with the devil himself, and a spooky grandmother in a wheelchair.
Satan’s Slaves tics many boxes of the horror film genre, so many that one could almost be led to believe that the whole thing is tongue-in-cheek. But just almost. This Indonesian film is probably the scariest horror film you will see this year, with an unofficial jump scare world record, brilliant special effects, and a soundscape that will send shivers down your spine.
