young woman named Kay is on holiday in SE Asia with a friend who suddenly
becomes ill and dies. Kay also dies a bit later in the hospital. The
doctors are mystified as to the cause of death (perhaps something to
do with the reddish sores on her skin?). Kay's brother, Wai Lun, investigates
and discovers her death may have been caused by an ancient curse. He
returns to SE Asia and hires a Taoist Priest to rid his family of the
black magic spell. Things don't go well.
The plot may sound tame, but don't be deceived. This
is the legendary HK goss-out film that has polarized viewers for decades.
It is an endurance test for anyone who is squeamish. This was the debut
project for director Keith Li. He found more success as a scripter but
he did return to helm Amy Yip's VAMPIRE
KIDS in 1991.
