This week we go back in time to 1976 in Hong Kong to have a look at a weirdo Shaw Brothers movie that has nothing to do with kung fu. This obscurity from the Shaw vaults, The Oily Maniac, is a revenge movie and a monster movie all in one and predates The Toxic Avenger by a few years. It is some utterly insane horror of the best b-movie variety but before I get into it, I take a few minutes to address the recent Lianne Spiderbaby plagiarism scandal and how it’s making assholes out of nearly every horror blogger I’ve encountered in recent memory.
Here’s the Impossible Funky article about Lianne Spiderbaby, by the way: http://impossiblefunky.blogspot.com/2013/07/who-does-your-girlfriend-think-shes.html
