Decent and sometimes very gross HK horror
28 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was excited to see this, Herman Yau's return to making the kind of nasty horror that we fans love. Gong Tau, though nowhere near as good as the like of The Untold Story is a nifty supernatural sickie with a plot highly reminiscent of old Shaw Brother's supernatural horror. This is one of the problems, for in my opinion the business of black magic spell casting was portrayed much better in their films. Gong Tau aims to be much darker and instead of intriguing, often charming weirdness, there is some really nasty gore, particularly towards the beginning with a couple of moments that many will find beyond the pale. There aren't a huge amount of grim moments, but when the movie gets bloody it always does so in immensely grisly fashion, although one such moment is spoiled by tacky CGI. The biggest problem with the movie is that it is curiously unengaging. Though most of the actors do reasonably well, with the wife coming off quite impressive, the lead is a little bland and there are no towering, gripping performances like many of the earlier Cat 3 movies. Thus the film is a much less thrilling watch. Also, the main character at times acts completely at odds to how someone in that situation would be expected to, a factor that, combined with the deeds that got him into his situation make him not terribly sympathetic. Despite this, Herman Yau's fine direction keeps the film watchable and stylish and the flaws never quite sink it. To sum up, though this will disappoint folks looking for another Untold Story or Ebola Syndrome, this is still a dark, sometimes sickening outing that will please seekers of esoteric stomach churners.
