One of the most hilarious bad movies ever made and the pinnacle of Indonesian exploitation cinema!
5 November 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Alright, so maybe a film with a title like "Lady Terminator" carries a limited audience. However, if you're part of that demographic (and I know I certainly am), you'll absolutely adore this piece of crap. Its an over the top rip off of "The Terminator", past the plot and down to the actual set pieces. The only difference being that this terminator is a she, and instead of being a cyborg from the future hell bent on killing an unborn baby, shes an anthropology student possessed by an ancient sea queen who seems to kill anything in her path without rhyme or reason. The completely unoriginal plot is fine with me, because while this isn't as suspenseful as James Cameron's sci-fi classic, its even more entertaining. From the beginning, its jam packed with nudity and pointless violence and the pace never once lags.

Again, this is a very bad movie. There's no continuity to speak of and the dubbed dialog is uproarious ("I am not a lady. I am an anthropologist!" ... say it like it is sister). And while Barbara Anne Constable may be hot as all hell, she can't act to save her life. The rest of the cast is even worse, but wonderfully so. My favorite performance comes from the undercover cop surfer dude who always seems to be high and has a mullet that threatens to take over the rest of his face. The direction for this crap is surprisingly better than the material and keeps everything moving at a lightning quick pace. "Lady Terminator" is one of the greatest cult movies ever made. (7/10)
