Human Lanterns
The Retro Film Series and AGFA present The Shaw Brothers: Volume One

Human Lanterns

Martial arts and no-holds-barred horror make for a seriously wild experience in this ‘82 slice of Shaw Brothers mayhem. A clawed, skull-masked village psycho is on the loose, swiping young women to peel off their skin in his grisly workshop of the damned. Could the murders be connected to a brewing town rivalry over the upcoming lantern festival? The rowdy scenes of the hairy, hyperactive maniac going to town turned this formerly obscure genre mash up into a cult favorite among Hong Kong fans -- so rejoice that you can see this “maniacal masterpiece of the macabre," the martial arts, and the just plain weird in all its glory on the big screen!

In Mandarin w/Eng. subtitles.
