Hex (1980) rarity directed by 'bad-boy' Kuei Chih-Hung
Hex (1980) rarity directed by \'bad-boy\' Kuei Chih-Hung

Original Hong Kong | Chinese title XIE [Curse]

director: Kuei Chih-Hung
starring: 'Tanny' Ni Tien-Jung Chen Szu-Chia Kwok Choi Hou Tsui Ling Yu Ching Ho Wang

Kuei Chih-Hung's movie liberally borrows from the French horror classic Diabolique [directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot in 1955]. Of course, this one is more gory and sexier. The plot, however, is noticeably similar: sickly Sau-ying is overtly mistreated and constantly tortured by her brutish husband Chun-yu. Even though, she suffers from tuberculosis, Sau-ying endures her husband's sexual abuse until servant girl Yi-wah takes pity on her and assists in a drowning. They dump his body in a nearby pond. Sau-ying starts believing that her husband has risen from the swamp to seek vengeance. The maid says such a thing is impossible, that she is merely responding to a natural guilt. However, it is soon obvious that something sinister is happening.

Bad boy filmmaker Kuei Chih-Hung was responsible for a large number of the 'video nasty' CAT III movies during Hong Kong's golden period, including BAMBOO HOUSE OF DOLLS, the S&M opus KILLER SNAKES, CURSE OF EVIL, CORPSE MANIA, SPIRIT OF THE RAPED and VIRGINS OF THE SEVEN SEAS. After making 38 films - mostly between 1974-84 - Kuei Chih-Hung retired to Los Angeles USA where he died at age 61 in October 1991 from liver cancer.
