"The Witch with Flying Head"

http://imdb.com/title/tt0122318/

Plot Outline: A woman who has been cursed by a witch must rip off her head every night so it can fly around, attack people and drink their blood, which keeps her alive.

I must find this! Anyone have more info on it Question This guy's review makes me want it even more

"Absolutely Incredibly Bizarre and Amazing !!!, 22 October 2005
Author: Mahatma Fabrizi (mahatma_phanishwar@yahoo.co.in) from Sri Lanka

The title creature is one of the most grotesque monsters known to zoophagousdom. Neither gorgon, nor utukku nor amphisbaena, it is rather a flying head, or undead being that could detach from it's trunk at will to swallow the living whole and has bloodthirsty tendencies, still having the spinal column & all of the internal organs intact! This aeronautical mooncalf, as depicted in this movie, can breathe fire, shoot laser beams from it's eyes, & even spit out exploding miniature disco balls. After a long night of blood drinking, the monstrosity floats back to rejoin with the body. By day, the beast is an innocent girl who's the victim of a terrifying curse, caused by a mass of fleshy matter, generated in the uterus, that lives within her body...

The origin of the Penanggalan (for such it is called) can be traced to the Malay Peninsula, it's legend tenuously handed down through the gauntlet of time, leaving us with only tattered remnants of its original horrific glory. Having full control over her organs, the dreadful cockatrice uses them much as the octopus manipulates its tentacles, yet this fact is often overlooked in descriptions. The Penangalian would use her entrails (primarily her small intestine, because of their length) to perform a variety of common mechanics, as well as using them to grapple with & constrict her prey. In the Philipines, and throughout Southeast Asia, it was said she would land on rooftops of houses where children were being born, signaling her appearance with a high-pitched whine.

The IMDb lists Fi to m n as a 1977 production, yet the soundtrack blatantly steals music from other movies (a common HK movie practice) bearing later copyright dates, most noticeably THE BLACK HOLE (1979), CONAN THE BARBARIAN (1982), HERBIE IN VANCOUVER(1982), and STAR TREK 2(1982) , and This particular film has never been subtitled into English, but is none the less perhaps the most accessible to Western viewers, with the possible exceptions of STREET RACING GRASUEH (Ta'ah Psushii Le'ak) & the more recent DEMONIC BEAUTY (Krasue). But this being a HK flick Kung Fu, Nunchucks, plus a highly psychedelic climatic battle between powerful Taoists are featured as well. And let us not forget the pulsating organs that are attached to the head, and the extremely brutal. blood-saturated showdown where teeth bore into flesh, knives penetrate intestines, and an axe chops into necks and hacks limbs off causing the red red blood to spray, and making this one of the most intense films from out of Hongkong!"

This movie has been on my want list for six years or more (I keep a text file with a running list of film titles I want to find).  I also ran across a description and have wanted to see it ever since.

Your post renewed my interest.  I could not find any source via a few searches, but turned up a copy on Ebay.  Woohoo!  It is done and paid for.  Thanks for the reminder about this film.  Quite a few come off the want list when someone reminds me about it and I look into finding a copy again.

This is the first I've heard of the film.  It sounds absolutely superb. 

I looked on Ebay but couldn't find any items under the title: "Fei taugh mo neuih" nor under "Witch With Flying Head"

Am I missing something?  I'd seriously order a copy if I could find it.

I'm sure the seller will put more copies up on ebay later, I bought a bunch of weird stuff from them before.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
