| Joyous crap!
Wey hey! - Here we are again with yet another cut & paste aberration from our old pal, Godfrey Ho (hiding here beneath his Alton Cheung pseudonym). And what a corker this is to! Yes, here we have the story of Sean, a man who is busy minding his own business training in the middle of a forest with his brother one day in preparation for a kickboxing tournament when out of the blue, a hapless damsel in distress suddenly crashes out of the bushes and begs for help. It turns out that she is hotly pursued by a bunch of Hessian sack wearing, face painted satanists who promptly exchange a few obscenities with our hero before he hands them their rear ends. Great stuff so far then! Matters become a little more confusing though as (as per usual) Ho edits this new footage into an older Asian film (in this case a rather enjoyable Japanese vengeful-ghost story). OK, so anyway, back to our man Sean and he is somewhat sceptical of the saved damsels story as she relates it, which concerns Lucifer himself trying to have her killed(!) Nonetheless, despite this initial rebuttal, Sean is dragged into the fold after his brother is murdered by Lucifer's number one henchman. The stage is now set for a climatic showdown between Sean, his brothers murderer and finally, Old Nick himself! Well, what can I say? How can one not warm to such a fantastic scenario as that described? Of course, the film itself is bloody terrible (as anyone with half a brain will deduce immediately upon learning of Godfrey Ho's involvement) but......it is also terribly entertaining precisely on account of its sheer absurdity in addition to the usual dreadful acting, voice over work, and general hopeless implementation. All in all, great stuff then! For fans of crappy movies, this is highly recommended stuff!
