"A Shaw Brothers production featuring a supernatural tale of revenge. Liu Miao-Li suffers a string of terrible events. Once pushed to her limit, she decides to take back control of her existence, but chooses an unlikely path to vengeance." - TMDB

"Dark & mean. Also, a guy is stricken with a massive boil on his neck that grows teeth. Watch it." - Closer Bones

"Behind its gross title lies a manic supernatural revenge jam that crosses Suspiria with The Evil Dead and I Spit On Your Grave, though before any of those films even existed. 

Colourful lighting, berserk use of fish eye lenses, and several once-seen-never-forgotten sequences make this another essential horror film from Kuei Chih-Hung. 

And, if I’m not mistaken, there’s some stolen Morricone giallo cues in there." - Some Dude On Letterboxd

"That title is extremely off-putting but the film is much better and less exploitative than the title suggests. Kuei Chih-Hung prefigures films like School on Fire with this brutal tale of a woman completely destroyed by her monstrous fellow citizens, who ruin her life and then kick her when she’s down, leading to her return as a vengeful ghost. Luckily the film sidesteps my biggest concern (playing sexual violence for titillation - often a problem in ‘70s cinema) and focuses on her downfall and gory revenge.

Kuei is always a fascinating director, though this isn’t his best work. It never rises to level of the beauty and absurd gore of Boxer’s Omen, the urgency of The Delinquent, or the utter depravity of Killer Snakes. But he’s got a game cast (including Wang Chung and Wong Yu) and imbues the film with a frenetic energy - continuing his role as one of the primary chroniclers of HK’s social ills.

Plus, if you ever wanted to see someone get kneed in the balls in extreme close up fish eye lens while Suspiria-esque shrieks play on the soundtrack, this is your movie." - Some Other Dude On Letterboxd
