New age, new wave black comedy attempt
4 April 1999 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

A presumed (this writer can only guess) humourous "New Wave" black comedy (?

  • not sure). The plot capitalises on the modern fears of genetic engineering


and the modern obsession with alien happenings, with (I think) large doses of Tom Sharpe type attempts at farce thrown in. This is also mixed with (very obscure) references to modern cult "gangster" movies. This does not mean it succeeds at being a black comedy or farce, it should be said.

Very broadly speaking, a secret organisation under cover of a cult "religious"organisation is breeding genetically altered humanoids in an attempt to produce a life form capable of communicating with aliens they believe will land on earth. They have fully guarded premises run by a dominatrix and supervised by a psychotic gardener (!?). Intruders are routinely extinguished by spade, trowel, rocket powered forks and homing medallions. The plot continues with a mixture of attempts at farce and gun battles along the lines of Hong Kong gangster movies until an unexpected climax occurs.

This film succeeds in the way the "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" does. The set construction would seem to share a similar philosophy.
