I've never been disappointed by a Mondo Macabro release. I especially love their Indonesian movies. In fact, the reason I bought this was for the second disc of extensive special features on the subject of Indonesian exploitation, including 70 minutes of trailers and a documentary. It took me a while to actually get around to making time for the feature presentation. Feeling the itch for some of this one of a kind trash cinema I finally watched Virgins from Hell last night and boy did it the spot!
The movie starts out out with an all girl biker gang in wacky colorful hot pants robbing a casino. Then they take us back to their hide-out where the leader tells the story of seeing her parents killed and her home taking over by drug lords. The casino raid was just the first step in avenging her parents death. They plan to take over the land and fuck some shit up for the bad guys. Their plan is foiled when they run into it head first not taking into consideration that their gang is totally lame and every one of them is taken hostage by Mr. Tiger, a bad dude with a penchant for whipping girls and animal portraits.
One by one they're being raped, beaten, maimed, scarred and burned. I really don't get what the heck they thought they were doing just running around in their tattered power ranger costumes with absolutely NO contingency plan. It's no wonder several of the girls turn on the leader, she kind of sucked! She got a lot of women killed in her little revenge mission. Sometimes Women In Prison movies have a kind of empowering message of womanly vengeance... and sometimes they need a big strong man to come and save them. This is one of those movies. Not that I mind! Someone needed to step up. They were taking it like little girls! So in comes our handsome Med-Student hero fully clad with overalls and no shirt underneath. Who has a sudden outburst of ass-kickery and invariably saves the day.
