Indonesian Suzzanna Movies

In the last couple of years I had several old indonesian betamax ex-rentals in my collection.

I was very surprised how entertaining these movies were.
I specially like the Suzzanna movies .... Suzzanna is an indonesian actress who played in many indonesian horror/mystic movies .... perhaps an Indonesian scream queen?
I allways found the movies in she plays in a bit better quality or a bit higher standard as many of the other indonesian horror movies.

the quality of the betamax tapes is not bad at all .... better as most of the vcd's
but the betamax tapes are often cut .... some of the blood etc is not in it. the vcd's also been cut most of the time ... dialogs are missing ..... or whole scene's are cut out.

there are also indonesian Laserdiscs of the Suzzanna movies. very good quality and longer runtime as the tapes and vcd's ..... only thing these Laserdiscs are almost impossible too find ... and when somebody has one, the disks are not for trade or sale.

I also saw that some of the Suzzanna movies were released with english audio (the indonesian tapes/vcd/laserdisks are not dubbed in english and dont have english subs) on international video labels, for example in Greece and Holland.

So I was wondering.
what or are any of the Suzzanna movies released on dvd with or without an english dub?
I only know the mondo macabro dbd of queen of black magic .... allways hoped mondo macabro would release more of the Suzzanna movies ....

Too lazy to pick up her sewing kit, Dayang Sumbi swears an oath: whoever helps her pick up her sewing kit, will be made her husband. Lengser, a kingdom officer, picks it up for her. Sumbiís father, the playboy, King Prabangkara, is furious when he hears that Sumbi is pregnant. The king puts a curse on Lengser and he turns into a dog. Sumbi is banished to the forest. Jaka Sona is born. The boy is always accompanied by Tumang the dog, whom he doesnít recognise as his own father. When Sumbi requests for a deerís heart, Jaka starts to look for it and is upset when he cannot find any deer. He starts to intimidate the dog and the arrow is accidentally shot. Tumang dies and transforms back to a man. Jaka takes out his heart and gives it to Sumbi. When she finds out that Tumang is dead, Sumbi is furious and banishes Jaka. The boy later resides in a cave. There, he listens to a magical voice, meditates for nine years, receives supernatural power and becomes Sangkuriang. He descends from the mountain to help the people who are oppressed by Prabangkara, his grandfather. He can only find his motherís grave. Sangkuriang fights the king and his soldiers, and later meets Larasati, resembles Sumbi. They fall in love. But then Larasati aka Sumbi, who is in disguise in order to hide from her father, finally recognises Sangkuriang as her son from a scar on his head. Sumbi reveals herself as his mother. Sangkuriang doesnít believe her, especially when she refuses to reveal the name of his father. When Sangkuriang keeps insisting on marrying her, Sumbi agrees on several conditions: Sangkuriang has to block the Citarum river, build her a pond and also a boat. All her conditions are met. He even has to fight Prabangkara throughout until the king is dead. Sumbiís plan fails. Sangkuriang keeps insisting on marrying her. When he tries to kiss Sumbi, she turns into a flower. Sangkuriang is remorseful. He kicks away the finished boat and it becomes the mountain of Tangkuban Perahu.

I compared the spanish vhs with the indonesian vcd.
the vcd has a runtime of 89:07min, the vhs runs 94:39min
I made some random screenshots to compare the image quality of the 2 versions.
the vhs has clearer colors also the ratio is "more" 16:9.

the vhs contains a scene that is not on the vcd, starts 57:16 / ends 1:01:58.
on the vcd the scene starts on cd2 10:52
