Lady Terminator (Indonesian: Pembalasan ratu pantai selatan) is a 1989 Indonesian fantasy horror action film considered to be a rip-off of the 1984 American film "The Terminator".

Cliff Doerksen of The Chicago Reader called the film "the kind of movie best randomly discovered on cable at 4 AM, but if you dig guys with mullets, director H. Tjut Djalil has some serious treats in store for you". Kyle Anderson of Nerdist wrote that the "movie isn’t good, but it’s totally worth watching because of how baffling it is".

Arguably the pinnacle of “knock-off” cinema and (dare I say it) human achievement itself

Birth, Movies, Death

Lady Terminator is like a traveling carnival: cheap, crude, and a rip-off, but also hard to resist

It’s got everything a schlocky movie night with friends needs


A real guilty pleasure

Village Voice

So supremely enjoyable and zany as to achieve anti-masterpiece status

You might die laughing watching this terrible movie masterpiece
