Corpse Mania

Reviewed by: mrblue

Corpse Mania is a movie for the whole family -- if your last name is Manson. Featuring choice bits like necrophilia and serial killing, there is more than a little sliver of a nasty edge present to the proceedings here. Unfortunately, that grimness and griminess is ultimately let down by the Shaw Brothers' patented low budget methods. Maggots and ketchup blood aren't exactly the sorts of things that'll instill feelings of fear in most viewers.

Summary: good, solid mystery

Corpse Mania is a good, solid mystery film. Director Gwai Chi-Hung does a nice job with atmospherics of the film; it is creepy and spooky in all the right places. The exploited necromaniacal element is in the scenario but it is tertiary to the plot proceedings. Tanny Tien Ni is smooth as the brothel madam while Wong Yung is quite competent as the police investigator.
