This… is one weird movie!
The acting is visually ok, but the voice dubbing is God awful. So what’s the good points? Well, the cheese aspect, to be quite frank and honest.
An American woman (Cathy) heads to Bali to learn their most powerful form of magic. She is, apparently, versed in the ways and means of Voodoo, but wants something with a bit more oomph. She eventually gets a meeting with the Leák Queen (with the most annoying laugh) who accepts her as her disciple. All the while we have Mahendra, her trusy male friend, trying his damnedest to get in her drawers.
The Leák Queen teaches Cathy magic but also uses Cathy to cause misery to the local villagers by detaching Cathy’s head and having it fly around the village, all the while dangling her innards. No, I’m not kidding. I’ll prove it, watch this clip of Mystics in Bali:
Mahendra needs to find a cure for Cathy since she is now transmogrifying in to snakes and pigs. A part human, part pig, with big boobs (which you do get to see!) is not something that turns him on it seems.
Special effects are something to rival Industrial Light and Magic. Sorry, I missed the word ‘not‘ in that sentence. Cathy’s head flying around and Mahendra’s Uncle levitating are, well, embarrassing.
The question is: did I like the movie? Fuck yeah! The acting, and dubbing, were awful, and the special effects were dire. What was there not to like?!
