"There is a skeleton in the movie who does kung-fu and changes into Giger's ALIEN whenever it starts to lose. Blissfully insane!" - Screen Anarchy

"A giddy hodgepodge of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Evil Dead that quickly evolves into its own imaginative carnival ride." - Horror

When the roguish Dr. Yuen (Chin Siu-Hou) returns from an international adventure with a case of the SEVENTH CURSE - a supernatural disease that promises to explode 7 of his blood vessels before finally killing him - he enlists the help the famous adventurer Wisely (Chow Yun-Fat) to secure a cure!

Joined by a plucky reporter Tsui Hung (Maggie Cheung) and hardened warrior Black Dragon (Dick Wei), the four soon find themselves fighting off an army of cultists, monks and H.R. Giger-inspired demons!

A hysterical genre-cacophony that could have only been conducted by Hong Kong's answer to Sam Raimi, the underrated Ngai Kai Lam, who would later cement himself as a cult auteur with EROTIC GHOST STORY and STORY OF RIKI-OH! 

The Seventh Curse is less a "movie," and more an "every-movie-ever-made-between-1980-and-1986-squeezed-into-a super-collider." Shlockmesiter Wong Jing (FUTURE COPS) even shows up as in a cameo credited as 'Would-be Playboy!'

One of Hong Kong's most deranged genre-blenders; a rollicking adventure movie rife with gore, kung fu and spectacular stunts!
