The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Human Lanterns (1982)

Director: Chung Sun


Two rivals go to great lengths to win a lantern contest.

My Take:
With a Shaw Brothers production the view kind of knows what to expect (lots of cool martial arts scenes and a bizarre script full of strange things). This one has a mysterious dude kidnapping young women and lanterns made out of flesh. I usually find the movies fairly watchable but just couldn't get into this one.

The version I watched may have been the censored DVD. As the gore was a minimum. Might have rated higher if it wasn't.

Rating: Warning (but probably closer to average)
