Following the success of Joko Anwar’s horror film Pengabdi Setan (Satan’s Slave), a tour of the actual old house where the film was shot has been launched for fans of the movie who seek to challenge themselves.
Organized by travel agent Sociotraveler Indonesia, Tur Misteri (Mystery Tour) invites brave souls to explore the creepy house located in Pengalengan, Bandung in West Java on Oct. 14 from 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. The price of the tour starts at Rp 470,000 (US$35) including transportation from Bandung to Pengalengan, a permit to enter the site, as it is located within a tea plantation, food and documentation.
Organizer Septyan Bayu Anggara said the idea came to him after he watched the film. “The house itself is already scary. [It made me] curious to find its location,” Bayu recently told kompas.com.

After gathering some information, Bayu found out that photography community Ghost Photography Community had already visited the place. “We later collaborated [with them] in putting together this mystery tour,” said Bayu, adding that the trip also included photo-hunting activities that would be guided by the community.
Bayu said that if the response was good, they might offer additional dates for the tour.
According to the travel agent's Instagram account, it took three months for the film crew to find the house that became the crucial setting of the movie.
“The house is owned by someone in the plantation but has been abandoned,” said Joko Anwar during the film's premiere back in September. “When we finally found the house, we couldn’t even walk on the floor as it was really fragile. We initially decided to find other location, but we eventually came back to that house.” (wir/kes)
