The Devil's Sword (1984) aka Golok setan came out at a time when the Indonesian film industry was thriving (it subsequently crashed in the 1990s), cashing in on various genres popular at the time including the fantasy genre, which came about primarily due to the popularization of the game Dungeons & Dragons in the late 1970s. Directed by Ratno Timoer (Revenge of the Ninja), the film stars popular Indonesian actor Barry Prima (Primitif, Special Silencers), who's probably best known for his character Jaka Sembung from the `Warrior' films. Also appearing is Gudi Sintara, Advent Bangun (The Warrior and the Blind Swordsman), Enny Christina, and Kandar Sinyo, most of who seem to have had a very limited career in film, appearing only in this feature.

As the film begins we see a wizened old man sitting on the ground, his meditations interrupted by a meteorite crashing to Earth. From the meteorite the old man fashions a mystical weapon (it's very glittery) so powerful, he ends up stashing it away for fear it might fall into the wrong hands. Anyway, seems there's evil power about in the form of a being known as the Invincible Crocodile Queen (Sintara), who resides in an underground lair (complete with crocodile motif) and takes sacrifices from a local village in the form of young men to satiate her lusty needs (which seem to be unquenchable). As of late the village has been slacking, so the queen calls upon a powerful warrior minion named Banyu Jaga (Bangun), who appears from exploding rocks, to disrupt a marriage ceremony for the village chieftain's daughter (Christina) by kidnapping the groom, which he does. Eventually this leads to another warrior getting involved, one named Mandala (Prima) as Mandala and Banyu Jaga both studied under the same master.

"The Devil's Sword" is a tough movie to get your mind around: it's an Indonesian fantasy film inspired by Dungeons and Dragons featuring some of the worst production values ever. The film opens with a crazy old guy making a magical sword, and abruptly changes course to show us an underwater village in Indonesia where they are welcoming the "invisible queen" back from the briny depths. Through the spectacle of special effects (involving a towel dangling on a string by the looks of it) the queen becomes visible: she is revealed to be the "crocodile queen," and has decorated her abode accordingly. Please note the tasteful bed in the giant golden jaws of a crocodile, and the large gold crocodile statue ornamenting her personal fire pit. Around this time in the film the credits decide to show up, and continue to do so intermittently for about the next fifteen minutes. The music (by Gatot Soedarto) is an annoying 1980's electronic variety and plagues the film for the duration; likewise, please note that E. Muksin Hamzah edited the film. Perhaps someone could take away his scissors now; this is one of the choppiest, most ineptly presented films ever.

The premise of the film is that the queen has an insatiable desire for young men, so she sends for her evil minion and uber-warrior, Banyu Jaga (Advent Bangun) to capture a young groom from a wedding. Banyu Jaga interrupts the wedding to kidnap the groom, but, starting a trend, fighting breaks out. There is magic and sorcery to go along with a lot of leaping around, kung fu, and knifeplay.

Little in this world is more other-worldly than foreign sword and sorcery films. Don't believe me? Watch Conquest (1983), Lucio Fulci's Italian lunacy. But for now let's focus on southeast Asia…

A meteor crashes to Earth near some sort of elderly Zen monk dude, who then uses its ore to forge a sword--called the "Devil's Sword" for probably no other reason than a poor translation to English. Because why not, right?

We are then introduced to the Invisible Queen who, after the butt-naked sacrifice of a young Indonesian warrior, becomes renamed the Crocodile Queen for the remainder of the movie and summons a harem of men for a public make-out session to appease her carnal desires (which apparently require no nudity). At this point you're already thinking "this makes no sense." Trust me, I know. There was no better way to explain the story so far.

At first the plot seems to be about combating this Crocodile Queen's lust for male sacrifices, but then we steer in the direction of insurrection among her assassins who are all willing to kill whomever they must (including each other) to claim the "other" Devil's Sword and rule all of the warriors of the world. So we saw an old guy forge one…but now all the sudden we are to understand there are two? Sure. WTF do I have to lose.

The action in this fantasy/martial arts movie is insane and abundant--and abundantly insane. It's a combination of classic kung fu theater and horrible knockoff Hong Kong cinema.
