Ye Gods! Batshit Crazy Mystics of Bali Tonight at Logue's

Posted By on Fri, Jun 21, 2013 at 5:04 AM

If there’s one thing the films of Indonesian director H. Tjut Djalil teach us, it’s that’s young, attractive Western women should not go mucking about with ancient evil no-goodniks in the East. It only leads to oodles of guts, blood, death, destruction and really nifty non-CGI lightning effects. That’s the case in the three films that have gained Djalil a cult following among fright film fans — Lady Terminator (1989), Dangerous Seductress (1992), and the film that started this carnival of WTF-ness, Mystics in Bali (1981).

Initially banned in Djalil’s home country for its gore and shock images, Mystics in Bali tells the story of a young American student who travels to Asia researching ancient magic and ends up becoming a penanggalan, one of the weirdest and ickiest vampiric creatures in the history of cinema (as seen in the NSFW trailer above). No sparkly Draculers here, boys!

Don’t miss it this weekend at the Cult Fiction Underground at Logue’s Black Raven Emporium. Hosted and introduced by Total BS Records label head honcho and weird movie fan Ryan Brush, show times are 8 & 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
