Not an original Shaw Brothers Production.
25 January 2004 | by (Archangel, Germany) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie in a record store for like 1 Euro, because I'm a fan of Hong Kong movies and on the back of the video it said "an original Shaw Brothers Production". What do you expect from an original Shaw Brothers Production? At least some Kung Fu, right? Well there isn't any in this flick. The story deals with black magic from a "witchmaster", who should make a man (Ti Lung), fall in love with a rich widow. Anyway there's no gore in it, hardly blood, while the Fx looks like "Evil Dead 1" with less(!!!) money and I must insist again: NO KUNG FU!!! This movie is boring, silly and as scaring as a commercial for..."Haribo Fledermäuse" for example. The only good I can say is, that sometimes this movie's so silly that it gets almost funny (especially in the end) and it has a cool funky soundtrack, which evokes the mood of exploitation movies. So I rate this movie 3 out of 10.
