We're excited to share this rare 35mm print with you, straight from the American Genre Film Archive collection, a vault of movies hidden around Austin and cared for by Alamo Drafthouse folks.

Centuries ago, the South Seas Queen ravaged unsuspecting men, snapping off their privates with the eel hidden in her vagina. One quick lover manages to grab the eel, and before he kills her she curses his ancestors. Jumping forward to modern times, an American anthropologist is intent on finding out the secrets of the South Seas Queen, and gets a little too up close and personal when the eel enters her, turning her into a vengeful killer. Armed with a killer body and eventually an assault rifle, she rampages through the city, targeting the one ancestor who happens to be a cute pop star. Copying entire sequences from THE TERMINATOR, this is the rare movie that not only lives up to expectations, but goes beyond to be one of the more exhilarating moviewatching experiences that you'll ever have.
