Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Chao Chun-fang (Lo Lieh), a mentally unbalanced lantern maker gets a chance to avenge his mistreatment by two rich and powerful men when one of the men (who are enemies, in fact) asks him to make special lanterns for an approaching festival. Chao then methodically kills three female family members of the two wealthy men and peels off their skin to use as a covering for the lanterns. These acts are shown in full detail -- not a movie for anyone sensitive to the victimization of women in films, nor for those who are aware of the Nazi antecedent of constructing lampshades out of the skin of their victims, nor for those who would find the actions objectionable on any grounds.
