Storyline

Yu Chun and her two loyal servants are deep in prayer when an evil sorcerer appears. He puts a curse on her, which causes her head to periodically detach from her body, fly through the air and attack those around her. Attempts at exorcism and removal of the sorcerer's poison are unsuccessful, and Yu Chun is forced to live with the knowledge that once a month her head will take on a life of its own and wreak havoc. Years later, another meeting with the sorcerer offers a chance to break the curse once and for all. Written by lament

Wild and insane HK horror with flying head.
8 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

My beaten-up copy of "The Witch with Flying Head" is in Mandarin,so the plot went beyond me,but here is the general gist:a young woman is possessed by evil sorcerer via his little snake.She becomes a witch with a detachable head that flies around complete with a spine and pulsating entrails hanging from it.This sexy witch preys on people sucking their blood.Fast-paced and vastly entertaining black magic/terror tale with a nice amount of gore.The action is filled with bloody deaths,crazy Chinese magic rites and incantations,not to mention martial arts fights.The soundtrack is stolen from "Star Trek 2" and "Conan the Barbarian",but I ain't complaining.Overall,I enjoyed this sleazy spectacle and I want another flying head's bite.8 out of 10.
