Magic Of Spell (HK 1990)

Rating: *
Cast: Lin Hsiao Lan

Oh my god, this movie is SO bizarre. I guess it's a fantasy horror comedy full of completely cornball effects that doesn't take anything (including itself) seriously. Some of the highlights include a flying peach that shoots laser beams, a character whose hand turns into a bird's head, a giant self-propelled boulder with chomping teeth, and a dancing tuber of some kind. Lin Hsiao Lan is quite cute as the swordwielding heroine of the film and her fighting is quite good. All of the action scenes are undercranked, adding to the goofy outlandishness of the film. Even if it were subtitled, I don't think I would have understood it.
