Linda and Ardo
meet on a beach in Indonesia and fall in love. Ardo is delighted to
have found someone like Linda. They marry and he purchases a beach
villa for his bride. But unfortunately, the beach and the house are
haunted by the spirit of a murdered woman named Ayshah. Since her
death, she has become a mermaid-demon bent on finding and eliminating
her killer. She has lost all empathy for humans, and as her blood
quest heightens even innocent people like Linda and Ardo are at risk.
This is one of
the most schizophrenic movies ever made, with a plot that swings wildly
from a vengeful mermaid to a morbidly obese fag-hag, from crude titty
jokes to a grotesque chainsaw killing. And director Yoyok Dumprink
never stops to re-think his A.D.D. [Attention Deficit Disorder], rather
he puts the pedal-to-the-metal and stays the course. In Indonesia,
there are really two kinds of horror movies. Some are truly scary,
impressive efforts that could easily stack up against the best horror
from anywhere in the world (i.e., Mo Bros' MACABRE,
SHOW, and most anything by Rizal Montovoni [CHANTING,
OF PENGANTIN and it's SEQUEL]).
On the other hand, there are a bunch of titillating 'trash movies'
dedicated to cramming as much sexploitation and sophomoric humor as
censors will allow (and sometimes, like with GHOST
OF THE VIRGIN GIRLFRIEND, openly defying the law). Of course,
it's all a matter of taste. Frankly, sometimes a hamburger is preferable
to a steak. Regardless, it's probably obvious, this movie falls into
the second category.
