The water supply in Taipei must have been contaminated with psychoactive fungi or heavy metals in the 1980's... probably both.

THRILLING BLOODY SWORD is a delightfully deranged mash up of fairy tales and fantasy, drawing from Snow White and Beauty and the Beast and presumably any number of wuxia stories.

It's pleasantly unpretentious and enthusiastically imaginative, which makes it impossible to hold the fact it is objectively rather cheap and a little bit slapdash against it.
