Indonesia’s beloved scream queen, Suzzanna, stars in this decidedly demented duo of supernatural revenge thrillers, SANTET and SANTET 2, which boast not just over-the-top gore set-pieces, but an abundance of slimy creatures, wild plot twists, and even impromptu musical numbers! Vinegar Syndrome presents this hugely popular set of Southeast Asian horror classics on disc for the first time in the United States, both newly restored from their 35mm camera negatives!
SANTET: After poisoning his wife, local gangster Bisman blames her death on the village cleric and instigates an outraged mob to burn down his hut, killing him in the process. The cleric's wife Katemi (Suzzanna) escapes into the jungle, eventually meeting Nyi Angker, a half-crocodile half-witch who gives Katemi diabolical powers, thus allowing her to commence a bloody revenge…
SANTET 2: Katemi is trying to live a pious life in her village, but most of the villagers shun and curse her on account of her previous murderous deeds. When the mentor of Nyi Angker finds Katemi and curses her, the madness in the village starts anew as Katemi turns into a vicious tiger every night, ripping the townspeople from limb to limb!
