The Boxer's Omen
DIRECTOR: CHIH-HUNG KUEI
CAST: PHILLIP KO, SHAO-YEN LIN, KAR-MAN WAI
With this semi-sequel to the smash hit Bewitched, horror maestro Kuei upped the ante in gross-out provocation, copious nudity, and shocking sadism, going further than almost any Hong Kong film had gone before. A buffet of grotesque gourmandizing is but one attraction in this Thailand-set tale, which revisits the previous film’s white magic monks while adding eel vomiting, flying heads, crucified bats, alligator guts, glowing urn power-ups, and more assorted artful insanity than you’re ever likely to find in another single movie.
Screening in the series Shaw Brothers Horror.
