A man's fiancé is kidnapped, and he and his friend move to rescue her from what turns out to be ancient Chinese mystical forces.

A phenomenal movie. Fun and interesting. The acting is great, the story is great, the setting is great. I easily consider this mandatory viewing, and I think it holds up even after all these years.

A drug reveals an alien world.

It has undertones which could make it very disturbing, however it is half-tainted by and half-infused with comedy. With a unique universe and being extremely watchable, this is definitely memorable and enjoyable.

I've heard it described as Evil Dead II - (1987 movie) meets Naked Lunch - (1991 movie). I think it also has a bit of the spirit of They Live - (1988 movie). If you know and liked those films, you'll like this one.

A must-watch.
