Bewitched (Hong Kong, 1981) dvd 2.5/5 What starts out as an interesting, yet predictable guy-goes-to-Thailand-and-gets-cursed Hong Kong movie turns into a semi-worthy effort by director Kuei Chih Hung to scare, gross-out and frighten the audience.

I think you are being kind with you ratings for the Game series. Like many Matsuda films, I think they are watchable but underwhelming. I liked the 1st one the best, but the action scenes are ridiculous with Matsuda's opponents having worse aim than a blind Storm Trooper. The 2nd one has a good ope...
