The Oily Maniac

Rating: 
8

Many of the same faces from the Black Magic movies are here for another Shaw horror "classic". Once again it's filmed in Indonesia for no apparent reason other than maybe it was easier to find locals who would be willing to go topless. There is nothing about this movie that makes any sense. It starts with a contract negotiation that ends with a stabbing, which leads to an execution, but not before a voodoo spell is revealed, and then an unrelated rape trial takes place, he said/she said flashbacks... well, eventually the oily maniac goes on the rampage killing women. Why? It doesn't matter. The only reason to watch this movie is for the horrible oily maniac costume and sound effects. Eight stars!
