maggots and ding dong the annoying boy
17 October 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This surely is a cult phenomena. It's being searched by horror buffs world wide and so far it doesn't had a proper release on DVD. It's out on oversized US VHS release and of course a Japanese release. If you find this flick then you will have to pay mostly around 150$! Is it worth that amount of money.

If you like Centipede Horror (1983) or films involving puking of real animals then this is a must see. It's a typically Hong Kong horror flick with horrible dubbing and cheesy acting but this one goes for extreme gross-outs in the form of a virus inflicted on people by a ghost that makes them break out in boils and abscesses, burst in green goo, and vomit pus, blood, worms, centipedes and snakes. Sadly that's it, were as the other animal puking flicks did had an interesting story this is rather boring. Still it's not for the squeamish or easily offended because a snake (living) is smashed to death and living animals do crawl out of the actors their mouth.

An excellent extreme gory opening with magic rituals and a body being opened by her to reveal maggots and goo. But from there Xie Mo becomes rather boring and goes downhill especially the scene's at the hotel with Ding Dong the young boy and there are a lot! You really have to sit through tame parts to see the maggots and puking, the final is worth seeing too. Only for the buffs.
