ONE NIGHT ONLY — JUST $5

Central Cinema’s Martial Arts Theatre series returns for a very special October installment spotlighting one of the strangest and most infamous films in the Hong Kong canon.

“Eel barfing. Rat chewing. Bat melting. Blood spitting. Face melting. Voodoo. Snakes. Reanimation. Regurgitation. Puke eating. Guts. Black magic. Brain stew. Nudity. And that’s just the first 30 minutes of THE BOXER’S OMEN, before the real hallucinatory passages kick in.” – Portland Mercury

A fallen boxer’s quest for an omen with the power to break a long-running family curse leads to an adventure through a horrific land of nightmares and death. When the punches start flying and the creatures of the underworld come out to play, the battle is on to defeat the powers of evil, and free his family from the evil hex that binds them.
