old school black magic
25 November 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

In my regions it was never released but I came across this flick a few times when I attended horror conventions and finally after years it was available for a few bucks. The only problem it had was that it had German subs but even if you aren't that deep into the German language you will understood the subs easily. The only reason I picked this up was for his director Herman Yau, known for the CAT III flicks The Ebola Syndrome (1996) and The Untold Story (1993).

It started with a rather surprise for me, full frontal nudity without blurred private parts. From there we move to a killing and yes, a throwback to the old black magic stories with centipedes. And by saying that you know that this isn't for everybody although it do has a few rather gory shots. The baby at the beginning and the dissection of a corpse is as gory as it can get.

Still it's not a pure horror flick, it's more a police story about catching a killer with some weird things going on. Don't expect a flick like Yau's other horror movies. There's a bit of bad CGI here and there but the centipedes are the real stuff here. Only for the lovers of old school black magic stories.
