""Bring me the blood of a black dog."" - a review by timchuma

There's about a million reviews of this film floating around on the web so I'll just comment on what I liked about the film.

It is incredibly tacky, but in a funny B-movie kind of way. For example, the cheap looking 'Ancestor God' skeleton that moves around strangely and the rip-off monster from Alien (1979).

What also made the movie funnier is that some of the subtitles seemed to have been inserted randomly by monkeys, such as having the words KEVIN BOYLE come up on the screen for no real reason (they could have put it in the credits).

Yun-Fat Chow also had an excellent role in this movie, even if he did just walk around smoking a pipe looking cool and being handy with a rocket launcher.

Overall a very funny movie, but I would warn that there are some 'Eww!' moments - like the maggot-breeding goop that gets poured on the bloke's head and what he does to try and get rid of it.

timchuma gives this movie 7 out of 10.
