Somehow Manda (Rosemarie Gil), the girl with snakes on her head, has
survived her death in Devil Girl, and is nursed back to health by her
grandmother (Etang Discher), an old woman with the body of a snake. And
grandma convinces her to continue her revenge on all those who have
wronged her. She even provides her with a magic stone that conceals her
snake hair, and with her minions, consisting of stone people, rock people,
and tons of midgets. Grandma also persuades Manda to abduct some girls on
the side for blood sacrifices - one such girl is Louise ...
hero (Alex Lung), a poor guy burdened with taking care of his grandmother
and his little sister who knows nothing but Kung Fu - but knowing Kung Fu
doesn't make him any money. Then though he learns that Louise's rich
father offers a high reward for her retrieval - and he convinces Louise's
dad he's the man for the job when he knocks out all of his bodyguards
single-handedly. Then he goes after Manda, but soon has to realize he's no
match for her supernatural henchmen. So he acquires a secret weapon - a
rope that will turn into a powerful fighting stick whenever danger arises,
and with this it's no problems to beat the midgets, the rock and the tree
people out of commission and ultimately take care of Manda and her
grandma. And yes, everything ends happily ...
film has little to offer: It's a very simple and straight-forward
good-vs-evil plotline with cardboard characters, standard situations and
absolutely no surprises, plus the narrative buildup really lacks
highlights, makes our hero's fight just a random series of events. And
yet, the film is great fun, an exotic low budget horror fantasy with lots
of bizarre monsters, special effects so ridiculous they're good (and above
all else memorable) again, absurd fight scenes, comicbook silliness and
Now don't get me wrong, this is not anything resembling a good
film - but you might tend to like it nevertheless.
