Devil's Foetus: The Anti-Koyaanisqatsi

A birthday cake full of worms; a possessed maniac eating the entrails of an (real) exhumed German Shepard; a slimy green demon forcing himself on helpless women; a man squished to death by the walls of a sauna. Few other movies… OK, no other movies can boast the awful but inventive gross-outs in Hong Kong filmmaker Hung Chuen Lau's Devil Fetus.

The madness begins when a woman is compelled to buy a rather phallic-looking jade statue at an auction. When she brings it home its demonic sexual power takes hold, and her husband catches her fondling it in bed. After making quick work of him, it turns on her. An old mystic finally imprisons a baby ant-eater in a shrine, but years later one of the couple's sons' girlfriends accidentally breaks the seal, reawakening the curse. The demon possesses the family dog before literally beaming into the younger son, who sets about killing, molesting and eating whoever he can get his mitts on. There's something kind of admirable about the way it just charges ahead with its nastiness, leaving plot details behind, like "we could explain this, but isn't the unknown scarier, anyway, and, besides, it would waste valuable time that could be spent revolting you."

Influenced by UNCLE SAM (1997) and shaped by early-'80s special effects, Devil Fetus also features a have-to-see-it-to-believe-it exorcism full of fiery swords, animated eye laser beams, and flying puppets. It's a must-see for fans of good old-fashioned low-budget special effects and fearless Asian cinema.
