|Plot Outline: Lin Yang-ba is thrown in prison for killing a man who was trying to bilk the family out of its oil “gardens”. Instead of dig himself out with prison chopsticks, he instead reveals to his friend, Sheng Yung, who happens to be a legal clerk, a magic spell tattooed on his back. This spell transforms Yung into the titular monster, at first tasked with justice and revenge against the gang after the oil operation and Lin’s daughter, Little Yue, whom Yung happens to be in love with. Things then get out of hand, however, and Yung begins to realize that justice is one thing and revenge is another.|
Make no mistake, though, the Oily Maniac is exploitation through and through. It’s boobs, beasts, boobs, chop-socky, boobs, rape, and lots more boobs. This movie is literally a travelogue of the boobs of Hong Kong as they bounce, get groped, have faces smashed into them (showing bush and ‘grinding’ are both no-nos in many Asian countries so ferocious mouth to breast play is commonly used to portray intercourse), even one grossly deformed by plastic surgery (!). No, this is not a movie of complex subtlety. Besides the breast fest, there are sneering bad guys, one of which who licks his lips like a cat spotting a sleeping mouse just before raping a woman. But wait! You also get slimy cigar-chomping lawyers, a rubber suited monster, and an gruesomely hilarious operating room scene.
