I need to watch some more of this particular Hong Kong amalgam...
10 January 2009 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

I just realized that I haven't watched an 80's movie in three weeks (for my "Revenge of the 80's Horror"-thread). And when I finally did pop one in..., I managed to watch this?!?! THE TRAIL is from the same man who brought us BRIDE OF CHUCKY, no less, and it's one from his earliest Hong Kong period. It could be loosely described as a horror-comedy mixed with that typical kung-fu/western-vibe. While A Chinese GHOST STORY is still the best movie in this field I've ever seen, THE TRAIL rattles and shakes from all sides, making it a less solid experience.

I even had difficulties figuring out exactly what kind of story this movie was trying to tell. I got the part about the oozing, leprosy-infested swamp-zombie out for revenge (and a nice creation he was, indeed). But it was harder to figure out what all the other characters where doing, running around in this movie. At one point they were smuggling opium, and the next they were after gold?? The humor in this film is often so dumb, it borders on slapstick. Yet still, it did provide some chuckles. The horror parts are played out right and are well dosed between all the other nonsense.

THE TRAIL is easy fodder and watches away nicely. Some nice looking sets and lighting with a distinct comic-book vibe. Some gooey and oh-so typical 80's effects. And a completely pointless and ridiculous final segment: All of the sudden, explicitly making fun of THE EXORCIST??? Boy, I really didn't see that one coming...

One remarkable thing though... I'm still scratching my head over the fact of how exactly Ronny Yu and his producers got away with this one: They lifted, ripped, stole (or call it whatever you want) a very recognizable part from John Carpenter's score (in collaboration with Ennio Morricone) for THE THING, and used it repeatedly throughout THE TRAIL... Left me baffled...

Pretty crazy flick, this one.
