Most people buying or renting this DVD will be a bit surprised since there is not one bit of martial arts action in this Shaw Brothers film...none. Instead, it's a totally bizarre and often funny film about the supernatural involving a kinky guy who uses black magic to do evil...if the money is good. Folks come to this scum-bag for various spells, but it seems the most common are death curses and love potions. Later in the film you learn that one of the ways this guy derives all this power is through the power of human breast milk! This occurs in a couple rather creepy scenes that will turn off all but those with weird lactic kinks! In addition, there are lots of worms and maggots and the like to make it even creepier.
The film looks cheap. The effects are cheap. The acting and script are cheap. However, it's near the end where the film really falls off the deep end into the being a truly dumb film. However, I liked this part as it really made me laugh--especially when the good black artist fought against the evil one in one of the funniest scenes I've seen in recent weeks. You just have to see it to believe it--it's THAT funny....and dumb. Really, really dumb!
By the way, you might notice how interesting the city is where this was filmed. It's Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. What neat architecture and sites.
