Indonesian Horror Hit IMPETIGORE Coming to Shudder in July [Trailer/Poster]

Director Joko Anwar's horror is heading to the streaming site.

Following a smash hit showing in its native Indonesia, director Joko Anwar's Impetigore made its international premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival. There it caught the eye of horror streaming site Shudder, who picked it up for a release this July. Anwar's previous film, Satan's Slaves, was similarly acquired by Shudder back in 2018.

"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. 

"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 Anwar.

Starring Tara Basro, Marissa Anita, Asmara Abigail, Ario Bayu and Christine Hakim, Impetigore premieres on Shudder July 23rd.
