Taiwan Noir 9: The Witch With Flying Head & Calamity Of Snakes

taiwannoir9

From the director of The Devil, as spoken of during Taiwan Noir 6 we couldn’t find any biographical info on the filmmaker but despite a varied genre-output (including martial arts and Category III), Zhang Ren-jie liked his goo and gore for at least two movies a lot more seemingly: the mentioned The Devil from 1981 and one of tonight’s movies for review, The Witch With Flying Head. And in the second half, the snakes get it for real and they get back at the humans in a fictional sense. Welcome to Asian cinema and the snake terror that is Calamity Of Snakes. Kenny B and new co-host Todd Stadtman of the Die, Danger, Die Die Kill (aka 4DK) blog take a stab at this double whammy of horror and way too real life horror.
