Doctors dealing with patients noticed something weird going on, such as zombies with spikes in their heads and when removed, they melt down, patients vomiting up worms, spontaneous combustions, exploding bodies, demon fetuses and the disappearance of women.

Lo Lieh is perfect as the wickedly sleazy black magician, with his undead slaves, activated by a single long nail to the skull. This film (also known as BLACK MAGIC 2) has great wooden acting (excluding the aforementioned), elaborate gross-outs (see other comment), and plenty of genuine chills. It's also got a great soundtrack; a song in an early nightclub scene was sampled by the Beastie Boys for "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun" on PAUL'S BOUTIQUE! Don't know if all the other Shaw brothers 70s productions are this good, but now I have to see them all!
