Early B&W Indian version of the story of Aladdin, features underworld monsters, sword fights, hidden caves, an evil magician, a beautiful princess, an impostor sultan, a giant genie, a 'light vampire,' and of course -- being an Indian film -- several elaborate musical numbers. Charming film with a look older than 1952, but to me, that's a plus.

Assault of the Final Rival (1978)

The story of Samson and Delilah, finds itself in the middle of a martial arts film. A fighter who gains his strength and ability from his long hair is betrayed by his lover. The short locks lead to him being beaten and almost killed during a match. He hides out at a temple, while a group of kung fu fighters and a mysterious hooded assassin try to find him. While early martial arts films are not known for their quality dubbing, this film really stands out in the ineptitude of the English dialog and delivery.

Bloody Mask (1969)

The plot concerns the successor of a dying emperor -- with two of his royal sons maneuvering to try to be the next in line. Meanwhile, a group of revolutionaries is trying to overthrow the emperor altogether. The action centers on a martial arts clan, whom everyone tries to enlist in their cause. But the real interest in this film lies is two things. First, the weapon invented by the daughter of the clan leader ( a flying-guillotine mask). The second point of interest is the astounding ineptitude of this entire production, including the acting and fight choreography.

A retired soldier is lured back into action because he needs money to cure his daughter's illness.

All this in a film that can't be called 'good,' but is probably a bit more involving than it's subject matter might suggest.

Crocodile Men (1972, aka - Kropeu Charavan)

Rare, early Cambodian fantasy film. We have two versions: one is dubbed into Chinese. For the purists out there, we also have the film with original Khmer language, with English subtitles. However, the Khmer print is far lesser quality -- Q-1/1.5. The subs on the Khmer version are often hard to read. (We have supplied the film with an English title, which is a translation of the original. I don't know if there is an 'official' English title for this film.)

A family -- and old woman and her two granddaughters -- live in an old mansion. They live under the threat of a curse, due to a past tragedy. When other greedy family members arrive at the house, looking to steal the family's wealth, the curse comes alive -- in the form of a hideous, slug like monster who likes nubile young women. This rare Shaw Brothers horror film is one of the weirdest produced by the prolific studio.

Curse of the Snake Girl (1980s)

For those who have never seen a Vietnamese fantasy / horror film, here's your chance. The low-budget and low-key affair seems to concern a young woman and a Snake cult -- but it's hard to figure out what's going on, since there are no subtitles. (This English title is a descriptive name, not an official title. It is unlikely that this film ever had an 'official' English title.) (NS)

Two men ignore the local warnings concerning a beast on the loose during full moons, and venture out at night. They are attacked by a tiger ghost -- a man cursed years ago for killing a tiger's mate. One of the men survives the attack, but he's badly wounded, and of course, he's infected by the curse. He now becomes a were-tiger himself, searching for human victims.

Some archaeologists go to Thailand on a working vacation. Once their, some local toughs and an evil wizard make their lives miserable. The wizard reanimates a killer zombi to create havoc, and when that's not enough, he ups the ante. Although this horror film clearly has an Asian outlook, it also has a hint of Straw Dogs to it.

A mummified body is excavated from the site of an ancient temple, and around the same time, a gruesome murder takes place in a locked bathroom. Even more puzzling is the fact that the victim has evidence of the mummy's hands on his corpse. A policeman comes in to determine if there is a human or supernatural killer. (NS)
