Topic: Finding title of old asian horror movie

I'm counting on your guys/girls expertise with this.  I haven't had any luck posting this inquiry in other forums.  Thanks so much in advance. big_smile

It's pretty old, but I hope someone can help with locate the title of this film. I believe it's a chinese film. I saw it maybe 10-15 years ago. Don't remember who stars in it at all, but my sisters have been asking me to find the title for years now cause they want to watch it again.

Plot goes something like this:
An old lady lives with her teenager-ish (?) aged son. The son's quite fat and doesn't really do much around the house. He's not really a nice guy from what I remember, kindy of creepy. Anyways, he's in love with his girl neighbor (?). The girl already has a boyfriend. Then I think the son killed himself.

The mother knows some black magic. She brought the son back (even though he was all gross and zombie looking). She kept him locked in his room/house. She then kept trying to kill the girl so that she could give the girl to her dead son as his wife. I remember there was a part where the girl had a birthday party (?) and just when they were about to eat the cake, it was all maggot infested (eww gross, I know).

At the end of the movie, I think they managed to kill the zombie son. The mom was trying to get back at her because she was crazy at losing her son again. The girl (and her boyfriend too? -- not sure) jumped off something like a building and died. I think that's how they escaped the crazy old lady.

Anyone got a clue? I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks!

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

^lol there are so many black magic and reincarnation movies from Asian countries that I cant figure out which movie this is.

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

^Well you recently had a birthday...could that be why it's familiar?  lol:|

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

anybody figure out what movie this was?

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

Sorry, I've seen a bunch of Asian horror, but this one is not one I remember.  You could try Keith over at Teleport City, he's a big Asian fan.  Sorry  sad

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

I'm asian and i don't think i have seen this movie. The movie should be pretty old , hong kong started phrasing out true intense horror stuffs in the 80s for horror comedies. There were a lot of really scary movies from hong kong in the 70s/80s. Most of them sadly you cannot find anymore on tape or dvd.

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

Kinda of amazing no one has thought of the movie yet.  Well, it's only been 12 hours.

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

This is actually a really old thread.   I'm just curious because the description to one of the scene is familiar to what I'm trying to look for.  I did a google search for the movie I'm looking for and just happened to stumble across this post.  I might create a post to see if anybody knows of the movie I'm looking for as well.

Some place I never heard of

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

I know this is an old post, and you've probably found the answer by now. But it kind of sounds like one of the Art of the Devil movies. I'm not 100% sure though.

Re: Finding title of old asian horror movie

Are you wondering how to start your own Thread?  To find a movie?  I don't think you need a certain number of posts to start a Thread.  Either way, why not just post your question here?  You don't have to start a new Thread.
