Human Lanterns

General info
Original title: Ren Pi Deng Long
Country: Hong Kong
Year: 1982
Genre: Horror, Action
IMDB Rating: 6.3 181 votes
Plot: 'Human Lanterns' mixes Wuxia-style martial arts and horror in a cultish but ultimately disappointing manner. The fights are well staged and surprisingly good for such a campy movie, but the horror elements felt way out of place. And they are far from scary.

The acting is over the top, the plot is weak and the direction awkward. I know that many think of this film as a cult movie, but this only proved to me that many times cult does not equal class. Personally, I'd rather rate this trash - an interesting mix but an ultimately disappointing view.
