The Boxer’s Omen

(Kuei Chih-hung, 1983, Hong Kong, 105 minutes)

A gonzo horror film with scarcely any antecedent, likened on AGFA’s website as being something of a cross between The Holy Mountain, Altered States and Rocky, but perhaps most tonally comparable to Shaw’s own Seeding of a Ghost (released the same year), The Boxer’s Omen is horror as confusing drug-hangover nightmare. If you ask someone to explain it to you, you’re missing the point.
