Big Bad Ralph,
Gong Tau The news of a new HK Cat 3 movie directed by Cat 3 legend director Herman Yau was big news for me. Even though I have a stack of that genre I haven't even watched yet, I still get excited when a new one is announced. This is all about Chinese Black Magic, and a curse being put on a policeman's family killing their baby with hundreds of needle holes, and inflicting his wife with severe pain. Also, other cops are dying for no reason and no cause of death, so the suspicion is GONG TAU. In the case of the baby Needle Gong Tau, but what is the most feared Gong Tau of all, yes, you got it, Flying Head Gong Tau. And when you see the guy sending out these Gong Tau spells, and his head and everything attached to it, you know you are in Cat 3 territory. The main theme of the movie, is the detective trying to find someone that can purge Gong Tau from his Wife, and then find out who and why somebody is casting these nasty curses. This is actually a pretty good movie, I enjoyed it immensely, and even though the nastiness is not quite as nasty as previous Cat 3 movies I've seen, this one still delivers the blood and gore in buckets. The ending is a little funny I thought, but still effective. This is still my favorite Asian genre, and this one does not disappoint. It's better than the last recent Cat 3 movie I bought, "Dog Bite Dog" released in 2006, but then again, I still liked that one too. For fans of extreme Asian Cinema, you definitely want your dose of GONG TAU.
