ETERNAL EVIL OF ASIA is a fun one. Combining some of the best qualities of both the HK CATIII films and the earlier 80's HK sorcery films - EEOA is a wild ride. As expected - a good bit of gore, sleazy sex and rape, a little bit of creepiness, and some insane hilarity that has to be seen to be believed. And of course - don't forget the ridiculously inept subtitling...
Four guys from Hong Kong (reffered to by foreigners in the film as HONGKIES - I almost p!ssed myself the first time I saw THAT...) take a trip to Thailand. One of the guys (named Bon) is engaged to one of the other guy's sister. They go to a sleazy brothel and get chased out, and in search of shelter, the four party-animals end up at a wizard's house. The wizard tells them they have to stay and witness a battle between himself and a husband-and-wife duo wizard team. One of the guys doesn't buy all the wizard talk - so the wizard turns his head into a giant cock (no joke...) which converts the other guys into believers with a quickness. The wizard fights and wins his duel (which is one of the funniest "battle" scenes ever, and includes some high-flying kung-fu sex techniques a la A Chinese TORTURE CHAMBER STORY...) with Bon's help, and to show his appreciation, Mr. Wizard asks the guys to stay and hang out for a bit (and also changes Dick-Head's head back to normal...). There they meet Mr. Wizards hottie sister, who ends up having a crush on Bon - but Bon ain't havin' no parts of it because of his fiancée (who's a fine piece o' ass as well...). She convinces Mr. Wizard to mix up a "love potion" to make Bon fall in love with her, but this whole scheme back-fires horrendously and ends up with her dead. Mr. Wizard is none-too-thrilled about this - and seeks revenge on all involved in his sister's death...
not as "strong" in terms of "shock value" as some of the more notable CATIII entries, but EEOA is still one of the better and more "fun" examples. A decent amount of campy gore, plenty of nudity (including some full-frontal), and a pretty coherent storyline make this one definitely worth checking out. Lily Chung (of RED TO KILL, DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS, and other CATIII "classics" fame) is also in this one as a "good witch" - and I've dug her a lot ever since my first viewing of RED TO KILL. Definitely recommended for the genre fan...8.5/10
