Magic Warriors (1989)

this is one weird Taiwanese movie.  it's about martial arts, sorcery and the wedded bliss of a good god and an evil goddess.  can't have that!

I first saw this in about 1993 or so, with barely readable subtitles.  I didn't know it was a movie of Lin Hsiao Lan, who had made a series of similar movies with much the same cast and crew.  it also had a title that translated as "Peacock Prince".

unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a decent DVD copy of this movie around yet.  it's a lot of fun, and Lin plays "Little Flying Dragon".  she played mostly male roles in many of these movies. 

I think that really is a talking flower and a snail demon.
