I absolutely adore this crazy, gory, insane film! Not as scary as the remake but I personally like this one better. It’s just a great time.
Awesome, A real gem
Love this movie! Had seen it before but well worth watching again. It’s exactly the kind of obscure international horror I was hoping Shudder would have more of. More please!
not bad for a 1981 movie...
Pretty good Indonesian horror film. Around this time Indonesian film makers were trying to break into the world market with a decent output of stuff like this. The biggest issue is they had low budgets, and their biggest positive was the exotic locations. So a lot of them are horror movies with a supernatural or mystical plot and filled with bad effects. This one stands out with some decent gore, atmosphere, and acting. Plus the culture is really interesting and you get to see a bit of that here. Worth it if you are open minded and can deal with the effects. A true classic and I hope Shudder gets more stuff like this as it is more worth it to me than your typical stuff we all own on shout factory or arrow video etc releases.
