Storyline

Doctors dealing with patients noticed something weird going on, such as zombies with spikes in their heads and when removed, they melt down, patients vomiting up worms, spontaneous combustions, exploding bodies, demon fetuses and the disappearance of women. A male-witch is responsible for all these calamities going on, but no other doctors believe this, until someone must go out there and stop him and prove that he caused all the gory, bizarre crisises.

Much scarier than Hollywood's tripe!
21 June 2002 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

"Bewitched Tame Head" is one of the most memorable scare films of the far east and of my native Hong Kong. It is a lot of fun, but don't be eating a full meal yet!

A doctor is investigating some strange and disturbing happening in his hospital, such as people being covered in gaping scabs all over body, parasites, worms and snakes under people's flesh and girls having abortions, only to find out that they have "aborted" undead monster fetuses. If that is not enough, there is a pretty damn wicked mage who grabs out the corpses of dead females, pound spikes into their skull and make them become the living dead, only if you remove the spike, the undead shall melt away and living girls being used as guinea pigs by the wicked mage. (DON'T WORRY, I WON'T SPOIL EVERYTHING!)

If you are sick of Hollywood's slasher flicks or want more variety in Horror/Supernatural cinema, check out the "Tamed Head series".
