Storyline

A sexy anthropologist is on holiday, goes for a swim in the sea and when she gets back to dry land she has become 'Lady Terminator', possessed by the spirit of an ancient and evil South Seas Queen (who is invincible to gunfire), whom is just waiting to go on a murderous rampage. She is soon armed with an AK-47 and isn't afraid to use it as she now takes to the streets of Indonesia to get revenge on those who have wronged her and get a bit of erm, male company that she hasn't had the pleasure of for rather a long time. Sit back and enjoy this Indonesian cheesy horror with more than the occasional nod to 'The Terminator'. Written by pHam

Indonesian insanity--fun for the whole family!
21 July 2006 | by frankfobSee all my reviews

Well, maybe the Addams Family. Completely, utterly whacked-out combination of cheese, sleaze, gore, sex, blood, explosions, shootouts, hot Asian chicks, mullet-headed stoners driving armored cars, inane dialog, brainless disco songs, guns that never run out of ammunition--all the things that make life worthwhile. Not as polished as your average Hong Kong martial arts / vampire / sorcerer flick, but with just as much if not more energy and sense of fun, intentional or otherwise. An Indonesian evil spirit called the South Seas Queen possesses the body (and not a bad one at that, judging by her frequent and, thankfully, gratuitous nudity) of an attractive Caucasian anthropologist in order to carry out a curse she placed on the great-granddaughter of one of her lovers from 100 years previously, and the possessed hottie, "The Lady Terminator", wipes out half of Jakarta to get at her. No one in their right mind watches movies like this for their story, acting, or comments on the human condition. You watch them to see a lot of shootouts, hot chicks, explosions, hot chicks, gore, hot naked chicks, stupid dialog and hot chicks who get naked while reciting stupid dialog, and this movie delivers all that in spades. "Good" and "bad" don't apply to films like this; they're beyond that kind of simplistic labeling. What they should be judged on is, do they deliver what they promise? And "Lady Terminator" certainly does that and more. You gotta see this one.
