“The things that actress Margaret Lee did for her role in this movie … now THAT is dedication to your craft.” — Hollie Horror, LETTERBOXD

After his sister dies under mysterious circumstances while on vacation, Wai Lun decides to take matters into his own hands. Soon enough, he discovers a family curse, battling wizards, and centipedes — lots and lots of centipedes.

Written by Suet Ming Chan (making this one of the only Hong Kong Category III horror movies written by a woman) and filled with creepy crawlies, melodrama, evil spirits, a very cute dog, and insect-barfing, CENTIPEDE HORROR is a true discovery for adventurous horror-fiends. Never released legitimately on home video in the U.S., AGFA is proud to present a new 2K preservation from the only 35mm film print in existence!
