BRUKA Queen of Evil (1973) Rosemarie Gil rarity
BRUKA Queen of Evil (1973) Rosemarie Gil rarity

MegaRare, Bizarre HK/Filipino Fantasy with Rosemarie Gil


Original Italian Title: REN TOU SHE [Queen Snake]

director: Yu Chik-Lim (as Albert Yu) and Felix Villar
starring: Rosemarie Gil · Alex Lung Ji-Fei · Etang Discher · Sandra DeVeyrar · Someno Yukio


A Hong Kong/Filipino co-production inspired by the Indonesian Snake Woman film (e.g., HUNGRY SNAKE WOMAN) but much wilder and even more bizarre. Here, serpent woman Manda is bent on revenge against the people of a village who had violently killed her parents. She survives their retaliation after falling from a cliff. Manda is rescued by her grandmother Bruka - a witch with the head of an old woman and the body of a snake - and she now lives in a jungle cave with her vicious minions (consisting of snakes, walking trees, stone monsters, fighting midgets, and a batman). Manda still conducts her vengeance campaign but she also helps Bruka kidnap young virgins for the 'ultimate human sacrifice.' One of the captured girls is the daughter of a rich villager who hires a down-on-his-luck kung fu master to rescue her.

Rosemarie Gil was a popular Filipino actress, starring in 200+ movies between 1958-2004, when she retired. Her filmography covers a wide variety of projects, ranging from over-the-top exploitation [like this film] to more refined dramas. In the Philippines, she is best known for Burlesk Queen (1977) and Shake Rattle & Roll (1991). Mis Gil married co-star Eddie Mesa after working together in 1959's Aawitan Kita (Let's Dance). He was called the "Elvis Presley of the Philippines" and enjoyed huge popularity throughout the '60 and '70s. Today, Eddie Mesa is a born-again Christian preacher and Ms Gil often accompanies him on tour [probably without any mention of this movie].
