THE BOXER'S OMEN
dvd

(aka Mo)

(1983)

DIRECTOR: Chih-Hung Kwei

STARS: Phillip Ko, Lung Wei Wang, Shao-Yen Lin, Bolo Yeung

SYNOPSIS: Outrageously wild and entertaining Asian magic / horror / action winner. A low level gangster watches his brother get pummeled in the boxing ring right into the hospital by big Bolo Yeung. He swears revenge and later meets with a rival who ambushes him. During the ambush the glowing apparition of a monk appears and saves him. Later that night he appears again and tells our hero to find him. The dead monk has been cursed and enlists the man to help release him as they share an ancient bond. The remainder of the story is a fantastical journey wherein the man must fight all matters of black magic, ancient hexes and evil sorcerers to end the curse and save his own life. The film is filled with the most amazing scenes: elements of The Thing, From Beyond and "Coffin Joe" films. Not to mention Hong Kong supernatural fare like Black Magic, Mr Vampire and the Indonesian classic Mystics in Bali. You'll see deadly bats, brains pulled out of a skull, needles in eyes, an eel vomited out, flying crocodile skulls, levitating heads, a corpse sewn into an alligator, laser beams shooting out of eyes, a body covered in crawling maggots and more! In one show-stopper a character has their entire skin ripped from their body leaving them wriggling on the floor like "Slim Goodbody". The film also has a surprising amount of nudity. Imagine if Alejandro Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain was less of an arthouse film and more exploitation. One of the most flat-out entertaining films on this site! In spoken Chinese with English subtitles. WIDESCREEN.
