DIRECTOR: KEITH LI

CAST: TIEN-LANG LI, KIU WAI MIU, HUSSEIN ABU HASSAN

You’ll want to have an exterminator’s number handy after seeing Li’s creepy-crawly nightmare, sprung from the mind of sickie scriptwriter Suet Ming Chan, which begins with a Hong Kong woman foolishly traveling abroad in southeast Asia without wearing the protective amulet gifted her by her brother, a surefire recipe for being slapped with a fatal “centipede spell.” This is where the punishment begins, leading to an eerie investigation that leads to a scene involving Margaret Li and an army of live centipedes that belongs in the horror cinema Hall of Infamy.
