This is the film that introduced a new kind of monster to the world’s cinema screens. A sensation on its initial release in Asia, Mystics in Bali was deemed too bizarre and shocking to be screened in the west.
The film tells the story of a young American woman who goes to Asia in search of the secrets of ancient magic. One night in the forest, she encounters a female member of the terrifying cult of Leyak. She agrees to become the Leyak’s disciple and begins to indulge in many strange and savage rites. But the Leyak witch has secret plans for her young acolyte. —mondomacabrodvd.com
More ridiculous than an episode of Power Rangers!; laden with bad English dubbing!; so much cackling! This movie is something alright. It's not good, it makes no sense, but it is a hell of a lot of fun!
Despite the atrocious pacing and the fact that the female lead is as stiff and lifeless as a corpse, this IS essential 'weird world' cinema full of bizarro special effects that are so imaginative and out there that you can forgive their low budget awkwardness. Flying heads with dangling intestines! Cackling witches shape-shifting into pigs, snakes and balls of fire! They don't make em like these anymore.
