Critic Reviews for Satan's Slaves (Pengabdi Setan)

All Critics (11)

  • Anwar's blend of both Americanised scares and Indonesian culture sometimes feel disconnected in a film that does possess both the technical style and character substance to be an impressive piece of work.

  • Good direction, performances and aesthetic can't overcome a lack of scares, overly simplistic exposition and a protracted ending that weighs the film down. Satan's Slaves is worth a watch, but don't rush out to see it.

  • Satan's Slaves is a supremely polished, legitimately creepy poltergeist/possession yarn.

    Sep 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Satan's Slaves is a petrifying peek into the nightmarish world of watching someone you adore grow frail and otherworldly, and the trauma that can manifest into monsters as a result of such torment.

  • The balance between visual scares and terror within the plot make for an all-around wonderful little gem.

    Aug 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film's intriguing mythology, as well as excellent performances from its cast as a whole, elevate Anwar's tension-filled exploration of the price that families can pay when someone dabbles in the dark side.
