Srigala [Wolf] (1981) Indonesian 'Friday the 13th'
Srigala [Wolf] (1981) Indonesian \'Friday the 13th\'

original Indonesian title: SRIGALA [Wolf]

director: Sisworo Gautama Putra
starring: Lydia Kandou
Barry Prima Rudy Salam Siska Widowati Dorman Borisman

Genre fans have often called this film 'the Indonesia Friday the 13th.' While that [Sean Cunningham] American movie is the obvious inspiration here [see pic top, left], this is - perhaps - more an homage than a ripoff. Interesting cinematography, effective atmosphere and good characterization help make this production stand firmly on its own.

The story deals with three treasure hunters who travel to Siru Angsana [an abandoned jungle camp] to find a sunken fortune at the bottom of a nearby lake. At the same time, two young women - Nina and Hesty - along with their friend Pono, have come to vacation at this very spot. The hunters don't like the intrusion and try to scare the kids away with stories of ghosts. It doesn't work. Then after Nina has a mishap in the lake, she is rescued by Tommy and they immediately become smitten. His buddy Johan pairs off with the other girl Hesty, leaving the boss and Pono to stew by themselves. Soon, these romantic interludes fade into the background when a box with a rotting corpse is pulled from the lake, followed by the appearance of a mysterious maniac wielding a machete.

Director Sisworo Putra is a major Indonesian cult filmmaker, best known for SATAN'S SLAVES, HELL HOLE, and I WANT TO GET EVEN. Just prior to this movie, he helmed the notorious cannibal pic THE PRIMITIVES, which also starred Barry Prima. Mr Putra died January 1993, at age 54.

Female lead Lydia Kandou, playing Nina here, is the popular action diva from 5 DEADLY ANGELS and JUNGLE VIRGIN FORCE.
