Amazon Wheel of Horror - October 12th - Exorcism of Darkness


Exorcism of Darkness is a short film by Fruit-chan, director of the disgusting, yet compelling Dumplings, about a 'villain hitter' who has a run in with a vengeful spirit. It is part of an anthology film called "Tales from the Dark I".

So first of all, let's talk about villain hitting. I'm not going to pretend to understand all of it, but it is a type of Chinese folk magic used to curse people who have wronged you. You would go to a practitioner a certain time of the year and they will use a shoe to beat a paper effigy, representing the person you wish to bring misfortune and misery.

This story is about one of these villain hitters, who after a long night of smacking paper effigy's and wishing people’s eyeballs to fall out, is approached by a ghost. This ghost is a girl the VH saw get kidnapped some time ago, and the ghost wants her to place a curse on these people. There’s more to the story than that but I won’t spoil it here.

This movie was only 30 minutes long but it's far and away the most satisfying thing I've seen so far during this October of random, terrible movies. It's shot well, there's a couple of really good kills, and it hits on an emotional level. All in 30 minutes! Highly recommended if you're willing to take a little time to break through the culture barrier.
