"Corpse Mania" is not as demented as it's reputed to be.I found Kuei Chih-Hung's earlier horror flick "The Killer Snakes" more disturbing and revolting.However there are some gruesome shots of decomposing female corpses eaten by maggots.There are also several intense murder scenes and some atmospheric bits that suggest Mario Bava's influential "Blood and Black Lace".A calm,inconspicuous young man has quite a special taste in women:he likes them dead.The factor of disgust bounces up to new heigths when the director shows us naked corpses of women,covered from head to toe with countless crawling maggots and he has the camera exploring every single body part.There is a necrophiliac killer on the loose wearing a black coat,a black hat,a white scarf and big sunglasses.The killings are gory enough:a stabbing in a car,vicious throat slashing,smashed head and a decapitation.The climax is fairly surprising.8 out of 10.
