An old witch casts spells on her victims which turns their insides into snakes and worms…



The Devil is a solid example of entertaining Hong Kong horror. Sure there are probably two too many characters that are mixed up with all the supernatural shenanigans (like the vengeful brother of the murdered woman), but there is plenty of slime spewing gross out scenes to keep you watching.” Mitch, The Video Vacuum

” …nasty little Taiwanese horror movie with some very gruesome scenes of people having these creatures crawling out from the mouth, belly and other parts of the body that might be unprotected at the moment. It’s more black and green slime than gore and blood, even if it’s quite graphic and not for the sensitive viewer.” Fred …. Ninja Dixon

“A typically insane and fast-moving Hong Kong horror flick with horrible dubbing and cheesy acting but this one goes for extreme gross-outs in the form of a virus inflicted on people by a ghost that makes them break out in boils and abscesses, burst in green goo, and vomit, pus, blood, worms, centipedes and snakes.” The Worldwide Celluloid Massacre
