Story revolves around a possessed young police woman who seems to be out killing everyone who gets in her way. Her boyfriend, photographer and boss at work are all suspicious of her and are out to find out what's the problem. With a story focusing on possession, vengeful spirits and murder, you're steadily entertained with a flick that manages to keep it's head above water.
I had high hopes for Hell Has No Boundary, but I was slightly disappointed. Expecting something a little more manic, violent, sleazy and just more entertaining is what I praying for. But instead the story focused more on it's eerie music, and lackluster kills to bring home the bacon. It didn't fail in any such area, and was actually an alright film on it's on merit. But as a film to shock the viewer with ridiculousness, this was not up to snuff.
The film does switch gears towards the finale to more of an action pace, but instead of marveling at the special effects you're more invested into what the hell is going on with the story. Which did get kinda cooky at a couple points. It's a pretty simple yet strange tale that works alright, but it never had me really caring for anyone or anything.
If you're big into Chinese black magic flicks with the sleaze and slime, this is one you may want to pass on. The violence is pg-13, there's barely any nudity, which kinda just shows up at the end when you were wondering where it was during the rest of the flick and the magical aspect isn't anything special either. But don't get me wrong, the movie overall is a fine lil horror flick. But just don't expect anything over the top or amazing. I do have to give it credit for a certain mirror gag that Evil Dead 2 is famous for and a dude dying by toilet paper.
