Astoundingly strange HK horror
15 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In all my experience of oddball cinema, this has to be one of the very weirdest films that I have encountered. Though more coherent than Horror House on Highway Five and less profound than the works of Jodorowsky, this film brought to mind such pinnacles of craziness. I have now seen it twice and enjoyed it far more on the second for at first I was simply bowled over. The film from start to finish, with some slight stutters in pacing, delivers a dazzling array of images and happenings, from typical Shaw Brothers gross outs, to full frontal nudity, brutal kickboxing and some far out monsters. There is a strong and unique plot, following on from Bewitched, but with a strong Buddhist element. My problem with the film was that it lacked scares and was often humorous or so bizarre and low budget that it became funny, which meant that it did not work so well as horror and was quite uneven, unlike its predecessor. Of the Shaw Brother's horror that I have seen thus far I have found this the campiest and wildest. I'd definitely recommend it but I just preferred the (relatively) more grounded, freaky approach of the others that I have seen
