And so it was with trepidation that I learned of Mondo Macabro's intention of bringing Ackyl Anwari's VIRGINS FROM HELL to the DVD format. My initial response was "what on earth for?" (Why not a domestic release of MYSTICS IN BALI?). Indo films are not traditionally good, and well, VIRGINS FROM HELL isn't any good. No, seriously. In spite of hordes of scantily clad jungle babes riding around motorbikes and shooting off machine guns, these VIRGINS indeed make for a lousy date. Director Ackyl Anwari shoots everything from static long and medium shots, with no camera movement of any kind, leading to a very stilted and boring movie. The subject matter simply does not lend itself to an Andrei Tarkovsky-styled presentation.Read more ›
The story is okay but not great, but there are lots of scenes that are hilarious. But the movie is a bit too long, which makes the pace too slow at times. Overall, not a bad movie, but I agree with the other reviewer who said this is not the best place to start if you're not acquainted with Indonesian exploitation films. There are better ones out there. And although I haven't seen all that many, I would recommend "Mystics In Bali", "Lady Terminator" or "Dangerous Seductress" before this one. Perhaps also "The Devil's Sword", which is hilarious at times but like "Virgins from Hell", somewhat suffers from an uneven pace.
Movie Review: There are three aspects I hate in the exploitation realm: strict sexploitation, most black magic s***, and women in cages crud. BUT, unfortunately I liked this movie so suck my butt. This movie has some crazy death scenes, explosions, inconsistent action scenes (at times I couldn't tell if it's a sex scene or a fight scene), moronic rape scenes (I think), sexy broads, lousy dubbing and dim-witted story. The let downs were NO NAKED INDONESIAN FEMALE BUTT and the fact the movie converted from a action flick to a women in cages CRAP but luckily it converted back into an action flick in the end. It's not the best exploitation ever made but I was fat and entertained.
Conclusion: 5 stars for the DVD and 4 stars for Virgins From Hell.

The movie itself is pretty much what you'd expect from something titled "Virgins From Hell". With an absurd premise, this laughable, eye-rolling, shoot-em-up, T&A flick out of... Read morePublished on July 22, 2012 by Randal
The movie itself is okay, but not that good. The movie rates 3 stars. Disc 2 is the reason to buy this set. It rates 5 stars. Read morePublished on June 3, 2012 by Amazon Customer
