(Hong Kong, 1983) There is nothing else in the world like this black magic martial arts movie that looks like the last 10 minutes of 2001: A Space Odyssey if you replaced the flashing colors and swirling stars with writhing maggots and bright green pus. And then you made your actors eat it.

ASURA - Thursday, July 12th at 6:30 PM at JAPAN SOCIETY
