The magic of murder...
25 March 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

No sooner does Long Fei (Derek Yee) get engaged than he's off for a two-year trip. Upon his return, he finds out that there have been several murders during his absence. Who murdered who and why is revealed late in the going, but in the interim we have spectral figures moving ghostly about the now-darkened mansion of Xiao (Yueh Hua), a monster in red attacking everyone and everything that moves, and more twists and turns and secret passageways than in a dozen fright films. Xiao's wife, it turns out, was a victim (apparently) of the monster in red (the apparent reincarnation of the spirit of a black lizard found in the Lizard Lake). Constable Tieh (Sun Chien) enters the picture and helps Long Fei make sense of the mysterious (and apparently supernatural) goings on. The closer they come to the truth, the more touch-and-go things become. The final resolutions are about as convoluted as they come, with secret after secret revealed in the closing minutes of the movie. THE BLACK LIZARD is a worthy who-done-it, with a martial arts twist (or two or three). Worth a look.
