    Part of Hoop-tober 2022

    Here's yet another supernatural gross-out hailing from early 1980s Hong Kong, a real grimefest courtesy of infamous producer Lo Wei. The pleasingly convoluted intro involves a woman buying a jade vase after the little beastie carved into it comes to life and makes sexy motions at her, then becoming pregnant by the scaly sex demon that comes with her purchase.

    Beyond the Seventh Door

    ★★★

    Made for pennies in Toronto by native Croatian Bozidar D. Benedikt, this '80s SOV obscurity concerns ex-con Boris (Lazar Rockwood), whose former flame Wendy (Bonnie Beck) now works and lives in some sort of castle. Wendy helps Boris enter its basement to steal a rumored treasure, unaware that Lord Breston has a modest network of booby trapped rooms down there to stop any would-be robbers. The bulk of the movie therefore plays like a Z-grade precursor to Cube, as the…
