Awesome under-rated HK comedy horror!
17 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Return Of The Demon was scribed by Wong Ying who also wrote the first classic Mr. Vampire!

In his last directorial project, we are flooded with similar territory, only this time, exchanging vampires for werewolves and ghosts.

At times the film is hilarious, with some great action scenes with the awesome Dick Wei as the demon everyone is out to get. Big Silly Head, Shing Fui On is hilarious in the role of the hero much like his stint in Blue Jeaned Monster which I love!

Other greats to look out for are the hilarious Nat Chan (Magic Crystal) who gets a great role as a sadistic cop, and the late Wu Ma who is great as always as a vet which some very strange work ethics.

The only small problem I had with it, was that certain comedic scenes tended to drag on a little when they would have been more effective shorter.

That said, it was all about switching off and being entertained which it did wholeheartedly.

Return Of The Demon may not been known as a classic, but it is most definitely worth the watch!
