Human Lanterns (1982)

10/10 - A real masterpiece!

I nearly passed this over because the Celestial disc is missing some of the gore scenes that made the film notorious, but thankfully there's so much more to the film than that it still comes out top class. A great story, and some of the best art direction and cinematography of any Shaw Brothers film I've seen - plus tons of superb fight scenes... and still a few stomach-turning moments left in too. A real masterpiece! Lo Lieh totally owns the film :)
