Psychotronic Film Society presents: Virgins from Hell (Indonesia, 1987)

  • The Sentient Bean 13 East Park Avenue Savannah, GA, 31401 United States (map)

Showtime is 8 p.m., with $7 admission for immature viewers.

The Psychotronic Film Society’s ongoing weekly series of overlooked and/or critically acclaimed features continues with a rare public viewing of an infamously absurd Indonesian exploitation flick from 1987, which was never released theatrically in the U.S. It’s “Virgins From Hell” aka “Maidens’ Revenge.”

Packed with fistfights, explosions, unsavory characters and all manner of low-rent depravity, it’s the ridiculous tale of an all-virgin female motorcycle gang (replete with huge, teased hairdos and skimpy “Flashdance”-inspired outfits) who go to war against a villainous and sadistic organized crime boss who’s keeping scientists against their will in an underground dungeon and forcing them to create the most powerful aphrodisiac ever made (so he can become the richest man in the world).

Psychotronic cinema enthusiasts know that cheap, fast and out-of-control Indonesian action flicks from the ’70s and ’80s are some of the most laughably nonsensical and trashy of their type. However, within that low-budget sub-genre, “Virgins From Hell” is surprisingly well-made — from a technical standpoint, that is. The PFS will screen a fully uncut and restored widescreen print of the film, which has been dubbed into spoken English.
