Doctors dealing with patients noticed something weird going on, such as zombies with spikes in their heads and when removed, they melt down, patients vomiting up worms, spontaneous combustions, exploding bodies, demon fetuses and the disappearance of women. A male-witch is responsible for all these calamities going on, but no other doctors believe this, until someone must go out there and stop him and prove that he caused all the gory, bizarre crisises.Written by
Dumb but far better than the first "Black Magic" film---plus you gotta love them nails in the zombies' heads!!
You might be surprised by the "Black Magic" films, as they have no martial arts in them yet they were made by the famous Shaw Brothers' Studio. Instead they are gross films about the occult. However, despite the gross scenes, most of it is really pretty tame. What IS gross are the scenes where the octogenarian black magician is shown drinking human breast milk to stay youthful! Yuck! And, speaking of that, this and the previous film in the series both have a lot of nudity--so it's probably not a good film to watch with your mother.
As for the first film (1975), it was a thoroughly stupid and low-budget film. While this one is also stupid and low-budget, it manages to work much better--with a more believable bad guy, better special effects and some really, really spooky scenes. It's still not an especially good film, but considering how bad the first one was, it could only improve!! Not worth seeking out unless you could use a laugh or have a bizarre fetish about breast milk.
