Joko Anwar’s Horror Movie ‘Impetigore’ is Indonesia’s Submission for Next Year’s Academy Awards

We learned last week that Jayro Bustamante’s La Llorona is Guatemala’s submission for the Academy Awards next year, and believe it or not it’s not the only Shudder Original horror movie that’s been submitted for potential Oscar consideration. Today brings word that Joko Anwar‘s Impetigore, also a Shudder Original, has been chosen as Indonesia’s submission!

If selected by the Academy, Impetigore would compete in the Best International Film category. How this works is that outside the United States, each country is allowed to submit just *one* movie for potential Oscar consideration. That list of submissions is then whittled down by members of the Academy, who ultimately select the films that will compete for the award.

Impetigore premiered on Shudder this past July.

“After surviving a murder attempt in the city, Maya, a down-on-her-luck young woman, learns that she may inherit a house in her ancestral village. With her friend Dini, Maya returns to the village of her birth, unaware that the community there has been trying to locate and kill her to remove the curse that has plagued the village for years. As she begins to discover the complicated reality about her past, Maya finds herself in a fight for her life.”

Tara Basro, Ario Bayu, Marissa Anita, Christine Hakim and Asmara Abigail star.

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,” Joko Anwar recently said in a statement.

Meagan Navarro wrote in her Sundance review earlier this year, “Drawing inspiration from the likes of The Texas Chain Saw MassacreImpetigore eschews jump-scare laden haunted house fare in favor of languid-paced taboo-breaking horror.”

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
