Strange goings-on are afoot in the once sleepy town of Loasha – after an innkeeper unleashes a fierce giant spider demon on an unsuspecting patron! Zhou Tong (He Peng), who works as a sort of policeman, keeping order in the town, decides to investigate. He has long been interested in the work of a powerful group of superhuman guardians whose job is preventing otherworldly demons from infesting the mortal realm. A malicious town rival frames Zhou Tong for a crime he did not commit and imprisons his father. In a bid to free his father, Zhou Tong seeks out an ailing member of the superhuman guardian alliance – and is gifted with remarkable superpowers of his own. He also encounters Xiao Tao Zao (Lin Yu Rou) and other new allies. And all this happens not a moment too soon – as hoards of bloodthirsty demons, including a gigantic snake, descend on the town, threatening to cause untold mayhem. Can Zhou Tong and his newfound cohorts save the town from these fierce beasts before it’s too late? “Fantasy Magician” is a 2020 Chinese movie that was co-directed by Xiang He Sheng and Xiang Qiu Liang.
