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 ...

Enter our 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 ...


Storywise, this 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 the like.

Now don't get me wrong, this is not anything resembling a good film - but you might tend to like it nevertheless.
