A gang of opium smugglers, disguised as Taoist Priests transporting hopping corpses (with charms), are hired to transport a real dead body to it’s final resting place. They accidentally lose it in a sulfur swamp–no big deal. But then the corpse reanimates itself and starts a murder spree, hoping to track down it’s murderer….
Ronny Yu’s (The Bride With White Hair & Freddy Vs. Jason director) The Trail is a solid Kong horror flick from early in the guy’s career. Many Hong Kong horror films from the early eighties owe a great deal to the influence of western films and this one is no exception with nods to Carpenter’s The Thing and also The Exorcist.
Really intrigued to check this one out, thanks!
