Editorial Reviews

Get ready for a wild ride! A sexually rapacious Asian goddess, known as the "Queen of the South Sea", possesses the body of a young female skin diver. Armed with an AK47 and an endless supply of bullets , this murderous Lady Terminator takes to the streets on a revenge filled rampage.

It’s like KILL BILL - but with oodles of sex. This combination of Asian black magic and western-style shoot ‘em up is one of the key cult movies of the ’80s. Even the jaded patrons of 42nd Street were shocked to see how the lustful Lady T dispatched her male victims!

Previously released in a cut, full screen version, this DVD restores the film to its original length and is presented in a digitally remastered widescreen 16:9 format

5.0 out of 5 stars Uproarious! October 3, 2004
Lady Terminator is an Indonesian film that tells the story of an anthropologist possessed by the spirit of the "Queen of the South Sea." This "Queen" was a sexually insatiable vixen who cursed one of her suitors by damning his great granddaughter to a miserable death.

Soon we're following the anthropologist as she plummets to the bottom of the sea and miraculously finds herself tied to a bed covered in rose petals. From the ocean to a bed in one big swoop! Amazing, eh?

Stick with me. Underneath the covers we see some slithering action and then out from the blankets comes a snake/eel that burrows its head in and then quickly disappears within the folds of the captive's (...). Apparently this nesting snake-eel sequence is the "Queen's" way of executing her possession of the anthropologist thus transforming our heroine into the Lady Terminator.

That's it folks. There's the set up. For the next 70 minutes we are treated to this female bounty hunter's tasty physical attributes as well her determination to unmercifully destroy everyone and everything within sight. Eventually our anthropologist-cum-vigilante discovers her quarry in a local shopping mall and a near unnerving amount of violence commences. This sexy femme fatale is loaded to the hilt with ammunition, laser eyes, unbridled vengeance and genitalia with teeth!

Does the dreaded "Queen of the South Sea" get her revenge or does the great granddaughter survive? Wade through the mind numbing savagery and gore to find out for yourself.

This DVD from Mondo Macabro is loaded with extra features including; A theatrical trailer, alternate scenes and an insightful documentary on Indonesian horror/exploitation films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kills brain cells July 2, 2005
Let's quickly mention the countries most noted for filmmaking. The United States leads the way, of course, with a whole city devoted to churning out cinematic marvels. France has a long tradition of releasing thought provoking films in nearly every conceivable genre, and has recently added amazingly grim horror films to the mix. Britain occasionally throws out something interesting, as do Germany and Spain. Italy, it should go without saying, knows how to make films even though they've lost a lot of steam in the past few years. Who else? Oh, Asian cinema is really making waves here now with what seems like hundreds upon hundreds of horror titles that are completely restructuring the terror genre. Japan, Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong--from these places artful nightmares spring. Finally, we cannot discount the contributions from Indonesia. INDONESIA? Yep, 'tis true. In the 1980s and early 1990s, the Indonesian film biz received a boatload of government money to make a bunch of movies for export to the States and beyond. Thanks to a DVD company called Mondo Macabro, we can finally sit in our homes and enjoy the fruits of Indonesia's cinematic excursions. God help us all. Unfortunately, God is nowhere to be found.

Cue "Lady Terminator," an amazing amalgamation of action movie, Indonesian folklore, and a mountain of artery clogging cheese. Others below have performed an excellent post-mortem on this unholy terror, but I'll go ahead and throw out another summary. The film begins by introducing us to the legend of the Queen of the South Sea, a rather vituperative old biddy who spends her days lounging around the undersea palace luring young men to her bed. No mortal can satisfy her cravings, not with a snake located in a sensitive area that puts an end to these poor chaps.

The grindhouse classic. Oh, you know, the type screened in wonderfully sleazy theaters in bad neighborhoods. Think Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS. Nice mental image? Alas, it's Americana lost to developers. Why must the most special of things always be the first trampled under the banner of progress? Look at Harlem today. This film is one of the last of the genre. You've heard of Lady Terminator, but never actually saw it, right? No longer do you have to risk rape or robbery to glimpse Barbara Constable's ample assets! The adrenal reward of the danger quotent may be gone. So is your excuse.

This an Indonesian picture from the dusk of the eighties. The story revolves around the authentic legend of the "South Sea Queen", who lures men to their doom. When one finally defeats her, she curses his descendants. One hundred years later, the Queen crawls up a cute anthroplogist's hooha in the form of an eel. With some strange immunity to bullets, she proceeds to kill everyone between her and the pop starlet great-granddaughter of the man who cast her into the sea. The ending left me wondering why the old man didn't just do that in the first place. But I won't spoil it ;)

Amusement abounds, not all intentional. We're treated to a burnt out shell of a helicopter that somehow remains airborne; cringe inducing bad jokes; inept overdubs; and, lest I forget, Snake's priceless mullet. Nudity. Explosions. And here's the kicker, folks. The latter two thirds of the film are a scene for scene ripoff of "The Terminator"! Even dialogue is cribbed ("Come with me if you want to live!"). Audacity at it's most grandly absurd. Pedestal worthy.

The print looks great considering the source materials. Mondo Macabro added some alternate scenes. Plus.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, but with some low budget exploitation charm
Terrible dialogue poorly delivered in a cheaply made exploitation film. That said, the movie does have its low budget exploitation charms.
