Movie Info

Hong Kong filmmaker Man Kei Chin's outrageous style is already well-known to viewers of his cult fantasy Sex and Zen II, and in this softcore Category III horror-comedy, he takes some particularly kinky liberties with the magical horror subgenre. A group of friends takes a trip to Thailand some time in the 21st century and runs into a mighty sorcerer, whose sister they accidentally kill. When they get back to Hong Kong, the sorcerer's curse follows them and they begin to die in peculiar and flamboyant ways. One is victim of the Hungry Ghost Hex, and begins cannibalizing diners at a restaurant before eating his own arm, another butchers his family with a meat cleaver before jumping off a building and being impaled on a neon sign, and poor Kong (Tsui Kam-Kong) has his head turned into first a penis and then a pincushion. Julie Lee has an entertaining aerial sex scene, veteran Lo Mang appears in a cameo as a Taoist priest, and Yuen King-tan plays yet another hysterical hair stylist. Eventually, besieged heroine May (Ellen Chan) turns to her best friend Mei (Lily Chung), a Thai sorceress, to save her and Kong from the curse. Chan Kwok-pong co-stars with Ben Ng in this romp that is strictly for adults only. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Nan yang shi da xie shu (The Eternal Evil of Asia)

Sweet mother of God do I ever love this Cat III classic. Funny, bizarre and gross. If someone were to write me a love poem, this would be it. Dickheads, evil magicians and a ghostly blowjob make this one of the greatest films since Citizen Kane.

"The Eternal Evil of Asia" covers all four corners of the Category III subgenre; it's a cheap but eclectic mix of dirty jokes, sleazy special effects, gratuitous nudity, and B grade actors. The plot is arbitrary and will remind fans of the subgenre why they love these films. "The Eternal Evil of Asia" works if only because of its dicey nature a must for this brand of tasteless cinema. The film's highlight sees actor Elvis Tsui Kam-kong's head turned into the glans of a penis -- its artisanship replete with contours and attention to detail -- is a singular spectacle of lowbrow humor.

Chinese cheese gone mad in this farcical weirdness involving a Thai sorcerer, oral sex performed on a ghost, impotence, and wizards flying through the air while having sex. Clearly not meant to be taken seriously, and so totally over-the-top that not even the usual bargain basement special effects can detract from the no holds barred attitude. Example: when one of the characters calls the main magician a dickhead, he gets his head turned into a literal dickhead with all that this might imply. This is whacky, bizarre, strange, and all too enjoyable, although it does also tend to try so hard to be outrageous at times that it overshoots the mark and just gets annoying. Nevertheless, if you're looking for something different, it's worth checking out. Harry Potter could learn a lot from Laimi the Wizard!
