8/10 - Very enjoyable!

On a trip to Thailand, Yuen Cheung is cursed by an evil sorcerer when he saves a girl from becoming a human sacrifice. She gives him an unusual medicine, but 12 months later the curse returns. He must return to Thailand to save himself and the girl. Spoilt brat Maggie Cheung tags along to get in the way, but earns her keep by bringing loads of guns :)

THE SEVENTH CURSE is based on one of the "Wisely" stories from unfeasibly prolific writer Ni Kuang. It's an Indiana Jones style adventure with extra blood, guts and nudity. There's some great special effects for the time, a dash of action and a good story. Very enjoyable!
