Eternal Evil Of Asia is possibly the most harmless and enjoyable of the Category 3 films out there, certainly the lightest that I have seen thus far, although it is still by no means the sort of thing that will appeal to mainstream audiences or people who claim to have morals. I won't go into the plot save to say that it involves a vengeful wizard and a decent amount of nudity, as well as considerable hilarity at times. We have Ben Ng as the villain of the piece and he does a good job, though not as frightening as his role in Red To Kill. Lily Cheung, the pretty heroine of that fantastic picture appears as a helpful white witch, while Ellen Chang is the stunning object of Ben Ng's evil wizards affections. The film is wholly off kilter and crazy from the get go, starting with noodle demanding ghosts and continuing with numerous hexes, a wizardry duel, sex and a splash of gore. There are some very funny moments, chiefly the wizards response to an insult from one of the main characters, but the subtitles provide amusement throughout as well. Anyone who can appreciate crazy subtitles is sure to be in stitches in a few moments of this film, particularly when Thai people address people from Hong Kong as "Hongkies". Pretty much my only issue with this film was the comparatively minimal gore. There is a fair amount, but the sleaze is much more prevalent here. Not that I didn't enjoy the nudity, but on the whole I like there to be equal splatter alongside the sex in these sort of films. Still, this is highly enjoyable stuff, with a plot and general turn of events that reminded me of some of the early 80's wizardry horror classics combined with smut and a lot of laughs. Something about Hong Kong wizardry horror and the crazier end of Chinese humour tickles me just right and so this film was on the whole a delight for me. Highly recommended to fans of this kind of cinema.
