B-grade, but still have it good times
20 February 2003 | by gila_filmSee all my reviews

A young man, Gary, make a pact with the Dark Prince of Hell in order to get revenge for his father's dead. He granted unearthly powers and a necklace containing nine demons who aid him. Gery manages to fulfill his needs but the demons' thirst for blood is so cannot hold and Gary makes new enemies who are out to stop his evil rampage.

I remember when the first time I watched this flick, I'm just a little kid. On that time, this movie is succeed to either entertains and frightened me, because it sort of mix of Wu Xia and Horror movies. I'm so amazed by this.

And right now, I wonder how it still can amuse me. Defenitely worth watch for everybody that claimed him/her self as Wu Xia fans.
