I love Timo Tjahjanto's work. So excited for this!

He'd been talking about it for what felt like years on his Instagram.

Fittingly, this releases on Netflix a week after Apostle, a film Written & Directed by his good friend Gareth Evans (who he collaborated with on the V/H/S 2 segment Safe Haven).

I didn't like Headshot, but this will be on the list after Daredevil and Hip Hop Evolution S2.

This was fucking phenomenal in terms of brutal action. It was more violent than Headshot but Headshot had more action/gun violence than Night Comes - this had way more hand to hand combat.

I was like:




for most of the film.

It's light on Plot but high on menace & gore.

Timo Tjahjanto continues to find new ways to dispose of people on-screen

Uwais Team nailed the Fight Choreography yet again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the film. Will probably watch it again soon.

Surprised that this one remained as quiet as it did, thoroughly brutal and bad ass little flick.

Watched it. Seemed to be brutal for brutal's sake. Not much plot or reasoning behind anything. It was OK.

Haven't seen this one yet, but this describes how I generally felt about MACABRE, SAFE HAVEN, KILLERS and HEADSHOT, basically the bulk of his output, with or without Kimo. Certainly don't hate anything they've done and rated all of those between 6 and 7, but they both established their technical prowess and "cool" gore-n-violence bona fides years ago and don't seem to be evolving much beyond that.

Haven't seen any discussion about MAY THE DEVIL TAKE YOU, Timo's other, less starry 2018 picture that got dumped and/or buried on Netflix a few months prior to this one last year. Anyone seen it?

Not yet, but May the Devil Take You Pt 2 was listed on another "upcoming releases" site a while back.

The Night Comes For us was released (via Netflix) in October of 2018.

May The Devil Take You was released (via Netflix) in November of 2018, the month after.

May The Devil Take You has some really fantastic visuals and it's clearly an ode to The Evil Dead (1981) but I thought the film struggled a bit between the 2nd & 3rd acts.

I preferred the Indonesian Remake of Satan's Slaves, which was released last year (via Shudder) over May The Devil Take You.

Still, it's great to see so many Genre Films being released in Indonesia.

I assume Raimi was a big influence on the director of this and Devil Take You -- the scene in the butcher's freezer in this had me thinking Raimi-gone-martial-arts.
