Movie Info

Produced by the legendary chop-socky maestros Sir Run Run Shaw and Tan Sri Runme Shaw (better known as The Shaw Brothers), the martial arts / horror cross-pollinate Black Magic (1975) grabs the audience by the throat and refuses to let go. The story opens with newlyweds Hsu Lo (Ti Lung) and Wang Chu-ying (Lily Li) relentlessly tormented by widow Lo Yin (Tanny Tien Ni), who has sexual designs on Hsu and draws on the power of a necromancer to entrance the young bridegroom. But the Necromancer defies Lo's orders and enacts a wicked scheme of his own designs, which brings everyone to a gruesome end and then erupts into an apocalyptic battle between sorcerers, where light and darkness go to head-to-head. Lo Lieh co-stars; Ho Meng-Hua (Shaolin Handlock) directs.

Audience Reviews for Black Magic

I am new to Shaw Brothers Films, This one was filmed in 1975, There are two rival sorcerers who practice Black Magic. One sells his spells and the other seems to try and cancel those spills. Young Man is going to marry his sweetheart but his boss at work a sexy female wants him, so she hires the sorcerer to put a spell on him that works until the other sorcerer takes it off. In this Shaw Brothers film there is no Kung Fu Fighting. But there are some good special effects for 1975. Only 3 stars thought.
