When Thai girl Shui-Mei falls for nice-guy Hong Kong tourist Bon (Kwok-Pong Chan), she gets her wizard brother Laimi (Ben Ng) to use his powerful magic to help her get her man; Shui-Mei's plan backfires, however, when the spell is accidentally intercepted by Bon's three sex-mad pals, and she finds herself participating in an unexpected all-night-long foursome. After the magic wears off, Shui-Mei realises her terrible mistake, panics, and falls on a knife. Understandably upset, Laimi swears revenge…

Odd things are happening to hairdresser May and her fiance Bon, which trace back to a holiday Bon took in Thailand with his three friends – Kong (May’s brother), Nam and Kent. They are caught in a battle between wizard Laimi and an evil wizard and her husband, after which the tourists stay at Laimi’s place for a few days, where they meet his lovely sister. The sister is bored and fancies Bon, and she asks Laimi to put a love hex on him. But the hex is applied to the three other guys by mistake. Under the spell, the guys share a night of lust with the sister, who imagines it’s Bon alone who is with her. In the confusion after the spell lifts, the sister manages to impale herself on a knife. The guys hotfoot it back to HK, but the good Laimi turns bad and sets on a path of revenge. As his evil grows, so does his desire to possess May. Also in this wild romp is a Thai witch Mei, who may have the power to stop Laimi, and Yuen King Tan repeats her lecture on giving great blowjobs that she did in Naked Killer Two.

Inspired by Jules Verne's novel of the same name, this made-for-cable documentary follows a group of scientists embarking upon a perilous journey toward the Earth's core Journey to the Center of the Earth video. The "actuality" footage of the members of the expedition exploring subterranean caves and the like are juxtaposed with dramatized excerpts from the Verne novel, neatly comparing fact with fiction (though truthfully, the "facts," backed up by state-of-the-art technology, are far more fascinating).
