Bearing the same Chinese-language title as the 1975 Shaw Brothers shocker Black Magic, Gong Tau is a return of one of Hong Kong's more unique movie genres. Director Herman Yau, auteur of the Category III classics The Untold Story and Ebola Syndrome, has plenty of fun with this shocking, sometimes darkly funny exercise in cinema excess. Over-the-top gore effects and images abound in Gong Tau. This film has it all: sex, revenge, brutal violence, twisted black magic, copious bodily fluids, and even a severed flying head complete with attached spinal cord! Not for the squeamish or faint of heart, Gong Tau is the perfect antidote to Hong Kong Cinema's recent run of popstar vehicles, and a good bet for anyone looking for a little midnight movie madness.
