Lady Terminator Tonight and Tomorrow: Awesomest Movie in the Annals of Awesomeness

Posted By on Fri, Jan 6, 2012 at 6:08 AM

Like the Terminator himself — accept no substitutes, unless it's this one — Lady Terminator kicked in the doors of The Belcourt last Halloween weekend, blew the minds of everyone assembled, then vanished from the screen ... only to deliver a parting, "I'll be back." Now here it is — the next candidate for cult discovery on the level of House (playing on Turner Classic Movies next weekend!) or The Room.

Back by popular demand, this 1988 marvel from the mind of Indonesian schlockmeister H. Tjut Dhalil (Mystics in Balilook if you dare) is a nutbrain masterpiece in which James Cameron and South Seas folklore couple to produce one butt-ugly baby. It's mullets vs. mall hair when a vengeful witch possesses a busty anthropologist and takes out the locals in a double-digit body count — whether by machine gun or the secret weapon tucked away in her bikini bottom. (Let's just say she'd make a formidable adversary for Thong Girl.) And the dialogue! Sample gem of tough-guy talk: "We've seen more dead bodies than you have eaten hot dogs, so shut up and eat!"

It plays two weekend shows at midnight today and tomorrow at The Belcourt. See it now, thank us later. (The very NSFW trailer above will give you the barest inkling what to expect.) And in the meantime, here's a cool interview with leading lady Barbara Anne Constable.
