Film #105: VIRGINS FROM HELL (aka MAIDEN'S REVENGE)
Virgins From Hell (aka Maiden’s Revenge)
2 out of 5 stars
Ok, so, any Indonesian exploitation flick that features ripped-off music from everything from David Lynch’s DUNE to Sylvester Stallone’s RAMBO to – and I kid you not – “Nights In White Satin”, well, you know it’s not going to be an Oscar contender. Then, we get an all-girl biker gang who each dress in a different color uniform as they ride old Honda 350s and exhibit some of the worst cinema fighting EVER. Yee-up - “Jackpot!” You just hit Crap Movie Heaven! But let’s start here… the plot: The aforementioned all girl-gang takes on the "evil" Mr. Tiger who is a sleazy drug-dealer that the girls battle for killing the leader of their gang's family. Plans go awry when Mr. Tiger ends up capturing the girls and imprisoning them and shooting them up with some sort of Spanish-Fly type horny drug. Yes, the acting is horrendous. The dubbing is ridiculous. The writing is like something out of Special Ed: Scriptwriting 101. However, VIRGINS FROM HELL’s biggest crime is that it is an exploitation film whose plot hinges on sex/nudity and violence and yet it delivers none of those things. The violence is badly choreographed. The nudity is virtually non-existent. I mean, one girl goes so far as to get into a bath while still wearing a dress. So, ok, the film sucks, like REALLY sucks. However, this is one of those films that sucks so badly that it’s ineptitude makes it kind of endearing. Perfect for home MST3K nights with friends and beer, VIRGINS FROM HELL is nothing you’ll run the risk of ever taking seriously, but you can still have some fun with.
