Atomic Cinema: Lady Terminator
With the sun finally starting to gain the upper hand, our attentions wander towards more tropical climates and exotic locales. This time, our favourite guest programmer takes us on a journey to the Far East, where popular Hollywood Blockbusters were remade with 10 percent of the budget, but a 1000 times the imaginations and craziness: ‘The title of this movie is of course a rip-off of the Hollywood blockbuster starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But here the modern and ancient come together in a tale about a female anthropologist skin diver who discovers an underwater city, and is suddenly possessed by a sex-hungry Asian sea Goddess. The Goddess then returns to civilization for revenge as Lady Terminator, wrecking havoc with her AK47 machine gun. She is finally able to fulfill a 100 year-old curse of destruction. What can I say? This flick is a cinematic roller-coaster ride fusing Asian black magic and the Western world, but through an almost feminist lens. After all, who wouldn’t want to see a woman knock the shit out of men for a change? Plenty of nudity and loads of camp appeal, all with an otherworldly Indonesian twist.’
Doors open at 20:30, film starts at 21:00
As always, the screening is free, but cash donations are very welcome to keep the Vondelbunker running, so make sure you bring some cash for that and to ensure you can imbibe before, during and after the film to make it all more pleasurable.
