Pengabdi Setan / Satan Slave

Since the death of his wife, Munarto and his two children, Rita and Tommy, are traumatised, especially Tommy. On the advice of his friend, he goes to a fortune teller who forecasts the destruction of his family. So the fortune teller wants Tommy to learn black magic. Munarto gets a housemaid through an agency. Darmina starts to work in their house. Tommy is suspicious because she looks exactly like the fortune teller he once visited. Rita and Tommy start being haunted by frightening shadows. Then Karto the gardener hangs himself and Herman, Rita’s boyfriend, dies in an accident. Tommy realises his mistake and learns how to pray. Tommy and Rita are suspicious of Darmina so one night, Tommy follows Darmina and sees her trying to raise his mother’s dead body. Darmina intends to take over Munarto’s fortune so she starts her attack through zombies. At the climax, an ulema arrives and Satan’s disciple is defeated.

For this compare I used 4 different versions.
1) Indonesian TV broadcast / PAL / 1:27:51
2) Japanese VHS / NTSC / 1:37:46
3) Indonesian Betamax / PAL / 1:58:04
4) Indonesian VCD / PAL / 1:32:55
The runtime of the versions is very different, even the movies have the same cut. the pitch of the ntsc japanese vhs seems to be the most correct, the HD tv versions is also ok, but the indonesian betamax is very off!

There is also a US DVD, but I was told this is a bootleg copy of the japanese vhs. only difference with the japanese vhs is that the dvd has english subtitles, so I didnt include this version in the compare.

The indonesian TV broadcast is HD remastered and looks absolutely stunning! but i wonder of the colors are correct. the contrast is very low, some colors hardly show, blue looks more like gray?

the TV versions has some censorship in it, there is a nude poster on a wall that is blurred, sigarets are also blurred .... one scene Rita is sleeping, for some reason her breast are blurred even she is wearing a nightwear. 7seconds fail from the tv version, no idea why .... the end of a scene were tommy steps out of bed and walks to a door.
examples of blurred scene's from the HD version, on the betamax version you can see best "what" is blurred.

here you can enjoy the HD Indoneisan trailer

the betamax only is missing 1 short scene, the close up from the hanged Karto

the vcd and the betamax look very equal in picture quality and picture ratio/crop

all versions are more or less the same, nothing dramatic missing. pitty was hoping that the new JD version had some footage that we didnt see before.

Maybe an intersting idea to put the english subtitles under the HD version.

what do you think of this designs for the dvdr?
A ) based on the indonesian betamax.
B ) frame from movie
C ) simple but nice

A & C I like most ..... C will look better, this is just a rough design. C is also the design I had in mind for the front sleeve.

great! thank you for the positive feedbacks.
on facebook are a few people and also on pre-cert a few that are interested.
will make a small set of 20boxes.
this will take some time, first need to receive the lobby cards that I will use for the sleeve design.

I want to make a digipak, not a dvd box. digipak I find more appropriate for a dvdr fan projekt.

will keep you updated

I think the end result is interesting.
ofcours you can not expect DVD Quality .... I only had Video and vcd sources.
the Goal was the make a longer Version, to add the missing Clips to the greek Video release.
i tried to make the "new" fit a smoooth as possible .... a cropped the full Screen more or less the same size as the greek Screen, and I amde Subs for the scene's that not in english.

I will post some screenshots in the next days.
