THE BOXER’S OMEN
MO
1983, AGFA, 105 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Kuei Chih-Hung

Easily the most notorious film in the entire Shaw Brothers catalogue, this is THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, ALTERED STATES and ROCKY all rolled into one. It’s the Wizard Battle movie to end all Wizard Battle movies. It’s all of ’70s gonzo kickass cinema compressed into an insane little ball and blasted through a garishly-colored ’80s Hong Kong filter. It’s one of the craziest damned things you’ll ever witness in a movie theater. This hexadelical, truly incredible piece of cinematic black magic is a guaranteed mug-melter or your money back.
