Magic Of Spell, d. Chui Chung-Hing (1988)

Magic Of Spell (ignore the typo in the title card) is an utterly insane, completely idiotic, enormously likeable Taiwanese childrens fantasy martial arts film jam packed with wizards, ghosts, monsters and walking, talking ginseng roots. Apparently a sequel, it is a wonderful, stupid thing, with some amazing hair do's and some epic scraps.

Taiwan used to be called Formosa up until the end of World War 2. I personally think it's a nicer name, but what the hell has it got to do with me?
