21 Amazing Psychedelic Horror Films

The Boxer's Omen (1983)
Club Silencio

Yeah, you better believe a Hong-Kong boxing film made the list. This 1983 production from Chih-Hung Kuei (director of "Corpse Mania" ) tells the story of an injured Thai boxer (played by the legendary Bolo Yeung) who joins his brother on a quest to vanquish the family curse. Not that crazy-sounding, right? Well from here "The Boxer's Omen" erupts into a phantasmagorical body-horror storm of flying heads, masochistic sorcerers and clawed sex zombies. I mean, you tell me what's happening in that screenshot. View the trailer to get a proper taste.
