cheesy in all ways but a must see
14 October 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Hong Kong horror from the eighties but as cheesy as it can get. And due being cheesy and having laughable conversations it became a cult classic and it shows because it's becoming really hard to get this flick. It was available in Cantonese language with English subs on DVD but it vanished the earth and it rather goes for a lot of money when it pops up on the internet.

But it's worth the hunt if you can dig cheesy horror. The effects were indeed laughable and were done in stop motion or the use of green and purple lighting or with editing but you will keep watching it and it never becomes boring. I can't even say that it is a supernatural flick or a ghost story because it has elements of all kind of genres from the world of horror.

Of course it's famous for a few scene's, the eating of the intestines of a dog aren't for the squeamish and there's also some bit of animal cruelty with an eagle.

It starts rather good with the vase giving one's man a curse that makes his face immediately change into a face full of maggots and puss. From there on it takes a while before things go wrong but once the possession is in the house you will have some fun while watching it. And you must be prepared for some effects. Seeing is believing. I also liked the wizard or priest having his fight against the possessed body. It starts so nice and turns into the cheesiest moments of Mo Tai or Devil Fetus.

There's no nudity to spot maybe some will say the raping at the beginning contains nudity but nothing is shown. There's not that much of blood but the animal cruelty and the scene with the walls will deliver for the gorehounds. A must see and I admit that I never heard of this flick until a week or two ago, shame on me.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 1/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
