The potion even works & soon Jianjien & Luo-Yin land in bed together
- but only for one night, then Luo-Yin furiously throws him out, but later
reconsiders & gets the Black magicians adress form Jianjien for a
reasonable amount of money.
& while Luo-Yin gets a potion from Shan Jian-mi to make Xu Nuo her
willing love slave, Jianjien has to find out neglecting to pay Shan Jian-mi
costs his life ...
At his wedding to Quying, Luo-Yin is able to slip the potion to Xu Nuo,
& lures him away from the celebration under the eyes of heartbroken Quying.
But she's not one to give up on her man, either, & soon threatens Luo-Yin
with legal consequences, forcing Luo-Yin to give Shan Jian-mi another
assignment - to get rid of Quying. Soon too, Quying falls very ill, & an
x-ray shows that weird worms are eating up her inner organs, rapidly
approaching her heart, & there's nothing modern medicine can do. But her
uncle Wang & her friend Wei find another way to cure her: by white magic,
& so they huire Master Furong, a mortal enemy of Shan Jian-mi, tu undo his
Shan Jian-mi meanwhile has fallen for Luo-Yin herself & put her under a
love spell, so their guards are down when Quying, Master Furong, Wang & Wei
break Xu Nuo free of her mansion & free him of Shan Jian-mi's spell. But do
they, as Shan Jian-mi isn't one to be tricked easily, & he soon brings Xu Nuo
back under his control & has him go berserk.
It all ends in a car chase & a magic duel at a construction site between
good & evil, & good finally wins, while evil crumbles to dust.
While the cast - consisting many of the finest Shaw Brothers' martial arts
regulars - might suggest otherwise, this is an enjoyable piece of trash-horror,
full of over-the-top ideas, weird gore effects & cheesy optical effects,
with an extra helping of sleaze thrown in just for good measure. Mindless fun !
