Travelling through the jungle near the Burmese/Cambodian border, an
archeologist encounters a whole village slaughtred by some kind of animals,
& he finds a small wooden figurine of a monkey. A native, whom he meets on
his way on tells him it's the figurine of King Koy, & it's bringing bad
luck to anyone carrying it, bad luck that con only be averted if some kind of
cloth containing a magic spell is stuck to its forehead - which the professor
Later, back in the city, the professor shows his findings - including
King Koy'sstatue to his daughter Yoyo & her friends, the girls Palm &
Tick Tack, & the boys Dome, Dan & Joe. & as the logic of a film
like this goes, one of the youngsters, Joe, finds the figurine of King Koy
irresistible & steals it. & once he has it at his home, the first thing
he does is to remove the magic cloth from its forehead - which is when the
horror starts, first only in his nightmares, but at the next day, he has the
whole gang of youngsters around in his house, & as they are youngsters
& like to party, it''s inevitable that they drink & make out ... &
before they know it, Palm & Dan are taken out by some kind of apelike beast
that has obviously come from the King Koy figurine.
The rest of the gang
manage to lock themselves into Joe's bedroom, but unfortunately, the little
figurine is there, & so when noone's looking, kit takes the form of Dan,
who was Tick Tack's boyfriend, & lures Tick Tack out of the room to
bloodily dismember her. Then it takes out Dome too, & tries to kill Joe as
well, but fails because he has the magic cloth in his pocket - but is
obliviious of its power.
So the beast turns its attention to Yoyo &
almost kills her too, when Yoyo's father, the professor, stops by, & thank
god he carries a magic cloth with hm to stop the beast, & bind it in its
form as a figurine ...
Overly clichéd monster-movie that might
contain one or the other attempt at real horror & suspence, but overall it
is ruined by extremely blatant dialogues & way too much party scenes of the
kids listening to some bad covers of bad American 80's pop, scenes that
eventually lead to nothing. This all makes the movie rather bad ... but not bad
enough to be good again.
