Pengabdi Setan follows a family of four who must take evil head-on after their mother dies. Featuring plenty of scares and a shocking plot twist, the reboot of the 1980s horror classic has become one of the most-talked about films this year. It managed to attract almost 3.9 million viewers in over a month.

“We did not set a target, so [we thanked God for this],” said Joko regarding the number of viewers. (kes)
