Not even close to the one made in China earlier
12 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this film is: Painted Skin of Yingyang Chakra King.

The film is based on one of the story in the famous ancient Chinese supernatural novel of 18th century, but it is made poorly, by concentrating on the horror effect, with erotica (Unsuccessfully).
