Actress Aura Garcia (Jenny Lorenzo) has died of an overdose, and her manager Ted (Jim O'Doherty) hires psychic Andy (Sean Liang) to get in touch with her, and while Andy isn't really a psychic, he knows how to put up a show, with his lodgers Mandao (Scott Dunn) and Jackson (Sean McBride) forced to assist him. And Mandao, he's actually a real astral traveller, even if he's not too happy about his gift. Ted though quickly unmasks Andy as a fraud, and that should be that - if it wasn't for Aura reaching out from the beyond begging to save her life - which Mandao actually can because he has mastered the art of astral time-travelling. So after Andy has brokered a deal, Mandao and Jackson travel back in time, possess their respective other's past selves, dress up as policemen and pretend to do a drug bust on the very night Aura's supposed to overdose - and it works, too, and they even manage to swipe the money Andy has been promised for the whole operation. And that's where things get sticky, because as it turns out, Aura's dealer Fer (Gina Gomez Dunn), a good friend of Mandao's, has overheard her talking about wanting to make a blood sacrifice of Ted as an initiation rite for an evil cult. And now Mandao and company decide to do the right thing and save Ted's life - and this is where chaos erupts ...


If supernatural time travel movies are your thing, then Mandao Returns is definitely for you, basically because while its approach is all-out comedic, it takes its premise seriously, and much of the humour is actually derived from its thought through storyline. And while the budget of this movie certainly wasn't the highest, the film doesn't try to be bigger than it is but uses what it has to the fullest - be it situation comedy, colourful characters or even bits of atmospheric filmmaking -, making this one great fun to watch.
