The Indonesian horror hit is coming to Shudder.
Shudder has secured the rights to Impetigore, directed by Joko Anwar of Satan’s Slaves fame.
Impetigore stars Tara Basro (Satan’s Slaves), Marissa Anita, (HBO Asia’s “Folklore: A Mother’s Love) Asmara Abigail (Satan’s Slaves), Ario Bayu (Dead Time), and Christine Hakim (Eat, Pray, Love), and is written and directed by Joko Anwar.
“Joko Anwar is a master of modern horror, and Satan’s Slaves is one of the most loved — and scariest — movies on Shudder. We couldn’t wait to work with him again and are thrilled to share his scary, visceral and darkly sinister Impetigore with Shudder members,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager.
The film tells the story of a woman who returns to the village of her birth to unravel the truth about her inheritance and her part in a curse that has been plaguing the village.
“Impetigore is my love letter to horror movies I grew up with, slashers, ghost stories, wrapped in a tragic family drama not unlike my family. I’m excited to be working again with Shudder to bring Impetigore to their members around the world,” said Joko Anwar.
Impetigore will premiere on Shudder in the US, Canada and the UK on July 23.
