Product Description

This is the film that introduced a new kind of monster to the world's cinema screens. A sensation on its initial release in Asia, MYSTICS IN BALI was deemed too bizarre and shocking to be screened in the west. Until now... This is the first time the film has been released in the U.S. and is completely uncut and digitally remastered from the rare original negative.

The film tells the story of a young American woman who goes to Asia in search of the secrets of ancient magic. One night in the forest, she encounters a female member of the terrifying cult of Leyak. She agrees to become the Leyak's disciple and begins to indulge in many strange and savage rites. But the Leyak witch has secret plans for her young acolyte. Plans that culminate in one of the most bizarre and shocking scenes in all horror cinema!

Customer Reviews

Despite its location, it is not really just another Asian horror film.
Charles Justus Garard
I'm a huge fan of really bad movies, so in theory, I should have enjoyed this film.... But, I found myself fast forwarding through the last half of the movie.

Treat yourself to an artistically Bizarre and Beautiful movie with an exceptional music score.

If you have any interest in extreme cinema, you really have to seek this out. The UK Mondo Macarbro DVD seems to have disappeared without a trace, so thank goodness that this re-issue has surfaced with a better print, although it apparently leaves off a short documentary extra that the Region 2 disc had. But if you do see "Mystics in Bali" at all, you'll be in for a bizarre treat.

An American tourist named Cathy decides to investigate the art of black magic known as "leyak", and she gets her Balinese boyfriend to introduce her to a powerful leyak witch, in the hope of becoming an apprentice. The witch takes Cathy on, and over the course of a few nights teaches her some weird and wonderful magic, but unfortunately for Cathy, the price for such knowledge is becoming a slave to the witch's lust for fresh blood...What follows is one of the oddest spectacles you are ever likely to see in horror cinema. The witch controls Cathy by casting magic on her that causes Cathy's head to lift from her shoulders, pulling her spinal cord and internal organs out along with it! The whole head then flies off in search of blood, and in it's first hunt, succeeds in sucking an unborn baby out from a woman in labour, feeding on it from between her legs. The impact of seeing this on screen is hard to put into words. Despite some pretty low budget effects, the fact that such a thing is represented on screen at all is pretty fantastic.

Now this is probably down to the relatively low exposure of us westerners to obscure ethnic world mythology, as I have read that the main device in the film (a floating, blood-sucking head) is a staple of supernatural folklore in Indonesia.

Here is an interesting film that seems to defy being categorized.

It is called an Asian horror film because it takes place in Indonesia, but it is not one of those horror films like THE GRUDGE (I, II and III), THE RING, or THE EYE that have some believable sequences filmed with imagination and-- dare I say it?-- originality. Despite its location, it is not really just another Asian horror film. This one is about a Leyak, a creature in Indonesia and Mayalsia that is able to separate its head and entrails from the rest of its body and go after people. Like the Kuntilanak (shown in the far-better films called KUNTILANAK and KUNTILANAK II), the Leyak is a creature that intelligent people from, or living in, the above-mentioned countries actually believe to be real. Supposedly, these creatures have been seen by credible witnesses. These things, like the Queen of the South Seas (shown in an awful film from Indonesia called LADY TERMINATOR), are not mythological beings like vampires and werewolves that come originally from Europe and are not, as far as I know, witnessed in everyday life.

The acting in MYSTICS IN BALI, unlike in the film KUNTILANAK II, is so bad -- or badly dubbed into English -- that it is hardly worth mentioning, even though I just have. The German non-actress in the lead, supposedly recruited by the Indonesian filmmakers from a beach in Bali, doesn't even try to act. She just spouts her lines as if she were rehearsing a high school play. Apparently, verisimilitude is not a requirement for these films. When the girl's head, and trailing entrails, finally leave her body, no acting is required. Nor, apparently, are semi-believable special effects. Her image changes color and texture just before the separation is made, so we can tell what is going to happen.

this film was a blast! Some of most what the hell moments I ever seen in any film. I loved the setting and characters of the film. And the effects are outstanding for the time it was made. The story of a reporter studying black magic leads to an epic battle between good and evil. It's all I can say about the film because it is a film you have to see to believe and I had a blast with it. Highly recommend this flick! Support Mondo Macabre!!!!

My order went well and the product was new etc but I was a little disappointed in the film itself. It's not what it's cracked up to be. Watch it for free online or check it out from your local library. No reason to own this one.
