Courageous Cheung (Sammo Hung) has a reputation for taking on any dare, no matter how foolish it may be, in order to prove his unabashed bravery. Though his friends often take advantage of his misguided machismo by luring him into dubious dares in which they attempt to scare him and laughingly ridicule him, Cheung is placed in very real danger after the Master -- the man his wife is having an affair with -- hires an evil Taoist priest to kill him in what Cheung at first considers a routine test of bravery. Utilizing multiple varieties of dark magic and evil trickery, including hopping vampires and possessed corpses, Cheung is placed in constant danger. Only through his swift kung-fu skills and quick thinking is Cheung able to escape death and hire a supernatural coach of his own in order to defend himself from the increasingly threatening legions of the netherworld. The fever pitch builds to a breaking point as Cheung and the evil Master face off as possessed marionettes guided by the spells and incantations of their powerful Taoist priest rivals. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Holy cats! I loved it. by BeneGesserit February 20, 2008 - 8:46 AM PST

This was one of those movie experiences that left me wondering... how did I never hear about this before? Don't get me wrong--it's not Enter the Dragon; this is comparatively low-budget, but it sure has heart!

If you like martial arts, AND you like horror comedies like the Evil Dead series, you have to see this! There's as much voodoo going on as actual ghouls and ghosts, but it's genuinely creepy and laugh-out-loud funny, and the fighting is impressive too.

Hung is very likeable, and the black magic practitioners are really striking; it has nice acting for a martial arts movie. It surprised me over and over again. Especially the ending!
