While possessed by an evil spirit, a man murders his daughter. A police detective investigating the case also becomes possessed. A good monk helps fight the evil spirit.

A policeman investigating the horrid death of a five-year old girl is led to Thailand where he encounters black magic and eventually a series of horrible curses are placed on him to prevent his solving the mystery. That description makes the film sound reasonable if not a bit boring but believe me it’s not boring! We are witness to lots of sights including, a six inch nail being pulled from the corpse of a five year old girl, an extended spell battle between a monk and a sorcerer, a séance with floating skulls and twigs that write plus exploding bats. We also learn many useful things such as how to extract oil from the rotting corpse of a pregnant woman, or that eating maggots gives you super evil powers, or that if you discover a loved one is eating raw pork liver at night, all may not be well. All this commotion is because a callous Hong Kong tourist didn’t come back to his Thai lover by a certain date. She happily causes the death of several people and is willing to kill more so her ex-lover dies a protracted death. And strangely she somehow convinces a black magic priest to go along with this despite the pain and danger he goes thru when a Buddhist priest volunteers to fight back.
