The Shaw Brothers were responsible for some of my favorite kung-fu flicks including MASTER KILLER, AVENGING EAGLE and a whole shitload of others.  This is the first of their horror films I have ever seen and it's not too bad.  Any movie about a necrophiliac mass-murderer can't be all bad.  The thing that keeps it from being as exciting as the title promises is that much of the running time is taken up with police detective work which can get very dull and drag you right into sleepytime.  You do get some maggot-covered corpses and a bunch of giallo-style killings including a few really splattery ones which is exciting.   There's also a twist ending.  For some real good "mania" action though PSYCHOMANIA might be a better choice but stay far away from BLOOD MANIA that one's terrible.  And if it's corpse loving you crave NEKROMANTIK is the film for you.

THE KILLER SNAKES is supposed to be one of the Shaws better horror flicks plus it reminds me of the American movie STANLEY:
