Wild, exceptional Chinese period gore tale
28 September 2000 | by (Kasparhauser, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is all Pete Tombs' excellent book MONDO MACABRO promises and more.

The action more than speaks for itself. It kicks right in with the amazing sight of the young girl cursed by a wizard, sprouting lower-jaw fangs, her head flying in search of blood, with spine and guts hanging below. WOW! This film is only marginally cheesy or camp, a genuine chiller, in line with much of the Shaw brothers 70s productions. The presence of Taoism saving the day is a common thread in Chinese horror, too. The film moves fast, doesn't waste a scene, and there's plenty of blood and guts for the gorehounds. ****
