MYSTICS IN BALI (1981)
Original Title: Leák
Director: H. Tjut Djalil
Runtime: 86 min
Language: Indonesian with English subtitles
Rating: NC16 (Some disturbing scenes)
In researching for a book, Cathy travels to Bali and is introduced to the black magic cult of Leák. She meets an evil witch who promises to train her in the dark arts and is turned into a penanggalan, a grotesque flying vampire who terrorises the innocent villagers around her.
Based on a novel by Putra Mada entitled Leák Ngakak, the Leák is a mythological flying head with entrails still attached. Leáks are said to haunt graveyards, feed on corpses, with the power to fly and shape shift themselves into animals.

ABOUT A FEAR OF MONSTERS
Monsters have entertained and united us through our fear – from the genre defining Orang Minyak to the enduring image of Godzilla tearing through the streets of Tokyo – A Fear of Monsters explores the monsters that have traversed folklores and popular culture to the silver screen.
Featuring Asian horror films from the 1950s – 2000s, this programme is a cinematic continuation of AFA’s exhibition, State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
