Storyline

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. A male-witch is responsible for all these calamities going on, but no other doctors believe this, until someone must go out there and stop him and prove that he caused all the gory, bizarre crisises.

Voodoo Dolls and Zombies
20 November 2018 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

Voodoo Dolls and Zombies "Dr. Shi Chen-Sheng" (Wei Tu Lin) is a physician in Singapore who becomes concerned about several cases of skin lesions and other mysterious illnesses that have no medical parallels or explanations. Convinced that it is black magic of some form he calls in a couple of medical experts by the names of "Dr. Chi Chung Peng" (Lung Ti) and his wife "Dr. Li Tsui-Ling" (Ni Tien) to see for themselves and give him their professional opinions. Meanwhile, an attractive dancer named "Hung Wa" (Terry Liu) is performing at a nightclub and after she is finished one of the patrons named "Chang Ta-Nien" (Hung Wei) approaches her and asks her out for a date. Yet even though she had promised to go out with him earlier she now decides to cancel their date and subsequently departs with another man named "Kang Cong" (Lieh Lo). Not long afterward we learn that both Hung Wa and Kang Cong are not what they appear to be. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film incorporates the old-school tradition of linking the creation of zombies to voodoo rather than a virus as found in the majority of zombie films today. And it works to a certain degree as I found the film to be quite entertaining-at least at first. Unfortunately, as the show progressed I noticed that the director (Meng Hua Ho) kept using the same voodoo techniques over and over again and it got rather redundant after a while. But even so I still found it worth the time spent to watch it and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
