As obscure as The Devil is, the internet has more than beat me at summing up with 1980’s HK/Taiwanese horror picture: “A hideously ugly witch casts spells on her victims which turns their insides into snakes and worms.” –

This was the B-side to The Rapist (1994) on a cheap dvd from Videoasia. A weird pairing other than from obscurity.

Not without its charms, The Devil has some gruesomeness and worms and snakes and effluvia. And a kid named Ding Dong who wears some strange outfits and would make this movie quite the fish in the barrel for MST3K or whomever.
