Come for the boobies then stay for the sword fights. Bonus - crazy chick flashing at least half of her pubic hair. This movie fits the category sometimes called "fantasia" as in fantasy plus Asia. Expect to see LSD inspired sets with plenty of colorful lighting and smoke. This time horror is added and the gross out factor is certainly there with realistic looking autopsy guts and acid burns. Jason Pai Piao spends his first fights just beating up people. I confess, I thought he was Kuan Tai Chen for the first 30 minutes. It all comes down to the final five minutes when Jason blurts, "What is the bloody parrot all about?" The exposition that follows was simple. So why did we have to go through all that just to see some skin and sword fights? Overall, the sword fights were just fine, the plot interesting though it ran a bit too long. For fans of the genre certainly worth a watch but it will never be on any top 100 list.
