I loved this movie! Murni was a fantastic character. The visuals are not polished compared to today's standards, but if you are able to suspend your disbelief and just enjoy the movie for what it is, I think you'll like it. I would especially recommend it for people who liked Satan's Slave.
I rather loved this film.
A fun old-school horror with some great special effects.
This is so experimental stylistically that it feels like it must have come from a tie when the language of film making had not yet gathered its footing, therefor it comes across as B- grade and amateur. But this makes it unique and different, I love the alternative ( to what I'm use to) religious perspective, what people are calling moral ambiguity. Also I love that Monkey- Magic vibe. You have to ignore the appearance of low budget and understand that, that is what made sense at a time before Hollywood had decided what is wrong and right in movie making.
