HUMAN LANTERNS

Chung Sun, Hong Kong, 1982, Celestial

Martial arts and no-holds-barred horror make for a seriously wild experience in this ‘82 slice of Shaw Brothers mayhem. A clawed, skull-masked village psycho is on the loose, swiping young women to peel off their skin in his grisly workshop of the damned. Could the murders be connected to a brewing town rivalry over the upcoming lantern festival? The rowdy scenes of the hairy, hyperactive maniac going to town turned this formerly obscure genre mash up into a cult favorite among Hong Kong fans -- so rejoice that you can see this “maniacal masterpiece of the macabre, the martial arts, and the just plain weird” (Hong Kong Cinemagic) it in all its glory on the big screen!
