Comparison between the HK DVD and the Taiwan DVD.
About the movie
On their holiday to Thailand, four travellers from HK accidentally get into a magiciansí duel and make friends with one of the wizards called Laimi. Due to an unfortunate series of rather coincidential events, they kill Laimiís sister Shui Mei. Back in HK, one traveller after the other dies under mysterious circumstances. It doesnít take long to guess that Laimi has come to HK to take revenge for his sisterís deathÖ
The Eternal Evil of Asia is quite an amusing CAT III flic from HK with a couple of gloriously bizarre ideas.
About the different versions
Besides the usual HK version, which is also on the Tai Seng DVD, a slightly different version was released in Taiwan. Two scenes depicting Shui Meiís genital area were exchanged for topless takes, and in the orgy (with Shui Mei and three of the travellers) some alternative material was used, making the Taiwan version seem a bit more libertine. The discrepancy is so small, however, it hardly makes a difference. The Taiwan DVD is very hard to find, making the HK version a good pick.
Shui Mei appears slightly earlier with some dialogue.
Shui Mei: "Will he come here?"
Laimi: "I will leave you two alone to enjoy the fruit of love."
