Famous for his unforgettable portrayals of Dracula, Bela Lugosi (Plan 9 from Outer Space) is the undisputed king of wonderful “bad” cinema. The Mysterious Mr. Wong is crammed full of hilarious garbage, like Lugosi playing a Chinese sorcerer. There’s also a frightful amount of racist dialogue and general cultural insensitivity. The ludicrous plot revolves around the murderous Mr. Wong (played by Lugosi!) who is searching after the powerful coins of Confucius. But who cares about the story! Enjoying The Mysterious Mr. Wong is about appreciating the ridiculous oriental sets and wild leaps of logic, not to mention Lugosi hamming up every scene with his trademark facial expressions. A superb piece of filth, The Mysterious Mr. Wong is a masterpiece in its own way.
