A standard but reasonably sweet slice of old school Hong Kong horror fare
8 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This one doesn't seem to have much of a fan base, it isn't anything spectacular or great, but I found it pretty likable. Its basically a weird horror picture with a few scenes that people with insect phobias might find disturbing. The plot is pretty average, evil wizard avenging misdeeds from the past with deadly and mildly grisly spells. The wizard is nicely played by Hussein Abu Hassan, who I thought was the same as the wizard from Bewitched (superior item in this genre) but IMDb says his name is Hussin bin Abu Hassan. Whether or not they are the same person, he does a good job here, although it isn't quite as gnarly as the wizard in Bewitched. The rest of the cast, such as heroine Margaret Pak Li (who does suffer a little for her art) do pretty well, although nothing stands out as being that impressive, it all works fine. The film begins a little slow paced, I wouldn't describe the first 40 minutes as coma inducing like some have for it kept my interest, but it does take quite a while before things really hot up. The second half is pretty groovy, there isn't much in the way of gore but the spells and weirdness are somewhat compelling and towards the end there are even a few neat jolts. Director Keith Li keeps things watchable and interesting throughout and puts in a fair amount of energy in the second half, there's nothing too impressive but his work is very solid. Happily the film never trips into absurdity as some of the genre tend too and there is a fortunate lack of animal violence. There is at least one nude scene (always good) and at one point a bizarrely amusing ailment that I call green belly. I like this more than the other folk that have reviewed the real Centipede Horror, mainly because I adore old Hong Kong crazy horror. This sits about in the middle of the ones I have seen thus far, ie. I don't like it as much as Bewitched or Seeding of A Ghost, but I prefer it to Black Magic. So, if these kinda films are your kettle of piranhas than this one is moderately worth checking out in my book, though I guess judging by others some could find this boring. Whatever, I dug it and if you've read this far you might too.
