Trailers and Excerpts from "Crazy Indonesia" movies

Hello :)

I just started my research 3 weeks ago, and I am so excited about it!
Just to give you the pictures about the research I am doing, here's some examples of trailers and clips about the films.  Basically, the movies i want to analyse are not just Indonesian B movies or Exploitation Films. But, those with international distribution (VHS, DVD, VCD, Betamax; by MondomacabroDVD, Troma Entertainment, Brentwood Home Video, etc) and dubbed into English.  Some Western cult-fan boys label those kinds of movies as "Crazy Indonesia". Do you agree with them?

Introducing: Jaka Sembung and His Nasty Alliance

My name is Ekky Imanjaya. I am currently a postgraduate student at University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK. I am now starting a research on Cult, Exploitation, and B Movies from Indonesia which produced between 1979 to 1995 during the oppressive regime called Orde Baru alias New Order. And my research is limited to the films that dubbed into English and distributed globally by international distributor such as MondomacabroDVD, Troma Entertainment, Brentwood Home Video, Trash Online, etc.

If you are interested, please do read this blog and give some feedbacks. If you have any info about the topic, or you are also a devoted fans of those kinds of films, please do let me know and discus the issues here :). Thank you!

For this very first posting, I share one of the most epic fighting scenes of The Warrior a.k.a. Jaka Sembung.
