Set bound martial arts / magic kung-fu insanity. Flying remote controlled swords, a woman who shoots explosive rays from her finger, the ghostly laugh power. At one point there is a fight with a corpse / mummy that speaks English! A lot of skeletons are tossed around. Overall the film moves along at a good clip but it really exists in an alternate universe. If strident unreality is not your thing avoid this film at all costs.
Some of the "outdoor" scenes seem to have been shot in a small garage. You can see the wall painted sky blue only a few feet away from the actors. It is a little confusing as the lead good guy "The Phantom" and the lead bad guy "The Monster" resemble each other.
Regardless, I enjoyed the film.
