The Boxer’s Omen: Sheer WTF Insanity!

Seriously, this is total delirium. Words simply cannot do just to the continually increasing levels of ridiculousness in which this movie revels. Produced by the masters of Kung Fu cinema, Shaw Brothers Studios, what briefly starts as a martial arts film, quickly descends into levels of surreal horror and supernatural mayhem seldom seen. It’s as though, Tsui Hark took a shower in psychedelics, after getting his mind fried by Hausu, Jodorowsky and Buddhism. The film is in fact the work of director, Kuei Chih-Hung, a prolific director working for the Shaw Brothers in myriad styles, since the sixties. Time to delve into his filmography!
