Fun Horror - Comedy

In 1723 there is a royal guard in charge of protecting a Little Princess (this is what she's called and looks about 6 years old). When the stars align in a certain pattern, the Little Princess, the guard and the Blood Demon (big ugly guy with a big forehead) all end up in 1990. One of the modern girls looks like (the same actress) the queen that the guard is in love with. The Blood Demon beheads a guy with a refrigerator door and the head ends up inside the fridge. A couple of repair men sent to fix the fridge save the Little Princess and take care of her. The guard is found by the queen lookalike and her friends a fat greedy guy who is after the guard's gold and her professor friend who does the research and explains most of this to the cast and the audience. Those of you wanting this for Amy Yip will be greatly disappointed. She appears for about 10 secs signing autographs. For me the value is in the appearance of the Flying Guillotine (also for only secs) because I have all those movies but this one. There is also an all powerful magic pearl and a really cheesy plastic looking sword that the guard uses in an amusement park after a trip down the water slide (?!) and the repairmen use power lines into the water which charges the sword that then sends a bolt of lightning to cause the Blood Demon to explode. All in all a fairly fast paced horror fantasy comedy on the cheap Brentwood DVD label under Eastern Horror but with very poor white subtitles that often extend off the screen.
