| Laughable no-budget martial arts fantasy from Hong Kong
One of those weird little kung fu fantasy films that looks like it was shot on a very cheap budget indeed. The English title of DEADLY SNAIL VS. THE KUNG FU KILLERS seems to be a mistitling because snails play a very small role in the proceedings whereas DEADLY SNAKE VS. THE KUNG FU KILLERS is more apt because a giant snake has a much larger role. Whichever way you look at it this is so-bad-it's-good style entertainment and certainly a film impossible to take seriously.

The film's fantastic elements involve a couple of fairies who can visit Earth and do weird stuff like appear and disappear at well. A young hero is involved in the storyline, falling foul of his bad-tempered uncle and forced into a plot involving a battle to the death against an evil snake demon who wants to kill everyone in its path. Simon Yuen plays said demon and is unrecognisable under the cheesy make up. Bruce Lee's real-life buddy, Little Unicorn, is the erstwhile hero of the piece. There's a plethora of cheap and cheesy effects and background scenery here, although the martial arts isn't too snappy and overall this is laughable rather than genuinely good.
