Three brothers two sisters a hunchback and zombies!
Terrific Shaw Brothers martial arts mixed with a mystery plot line with horror elements. There are three brothers mostly referred to as first second and third brother. They are out to get an evil master who has killed 36 members of a family. But what they don't know is there are two sisters who are living dead girls! Their master has trained them in the finger of doom. They wear gold metal long pointy nails that shoot spikes into the backs of men's necks. This turns them into invincible living dead! One sister is evil and the good sister joins up with the first brother to defeat the evil sister and her zombie sword fighting slaves. The zombies can't stay in the sun or they'll melt so they do all their evil deeds at night mostly when it's both foggy and creepy. The evil sister spikes second and third brother and not only has a romp in bed with the living dead third brother she takes off her clothes and tries to seduce the first brother. There are plenty of great sword fights but they are not as bloody as some Shaw films. The nudity is not full on either but just suggested. There are some terrific moments of zombies carrying the coffin in the fog but there are no hopping vampires here. The evil sister talks about drinking blood but it's never shown. I highly recommend this to fans of Shaw Brothers martial arts films. HK Flix has this region 3 DVD. The other review here is basically a quote from the HK Flix review which smells of promo. But don't let that stop you from buying this DVD.
