also known as WHITE ALLIGATOR
director H. Tjut Djalil
starring Suzzanna · Soendjoto Adibroto · Vera Nagdalena
· H. I. M. Damsyik · Rita Sheba · Yulie Soleli
film opens with a woman giving birth to a while crocodile, and then
a few minutes later, to a human baby girl. Both infant creatures escape
into the swamp. Mom and her husband are quickly (and surprisingly) murdered
by an evil hunter bent on stealing a magical gemstone that wields controlling
power over the crocodiles. Fast forward 20 years [through the credits]
to the hunter and his family getting rich from the skins of the slaughtered
reptiles. Meanwhile, the grown-up 'child' is now the crocodile
queen and she rules over a bevy of nubile young women who decide to
take revenge against the vicious hunter. This is a rudimentary overview
of the story that - in H. Tjut Djalil fashion - must be seen to be believed.
(born Suzanna Martha Frederika van Osch) initially came to Indonesia
from the West Indies. Her exotic looks landed roles in numerous fantasy
and horror films before she became that country's leading B-Queen. She
is probably best known for the starring role in QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC
and SNAKE QUEEN. Suzzanna died on her birthday [from diabetes]
in October 2008 at age 66.
Tjut Djalil will be remembered for his amazing contribution to cult
cinema [MYSTICS IN BALI, LADY TERMINATOR, DANGEROUS
SEDUCTRESS, SATAN'S BED, DEMON SCANDAL, et al].
His movies are accurately described as outrageous cinematic rantings
of a madman. Mr Djalil died from a heart attack in May 2014 at age 86.
