Spooky Encounters: A Gwailo's Guide to Hong Kong Horror
Hopping vampires, seductive spirits and giant predatory tongues! Tsui Hark's "A Chinese Ghost Story "in 1987 gave many Western viewers their first taste of supernatural thrills, Oriental style. Yet the film was a comparatively late entry in a well-established genre. From Sammo Hung's "Spooky Encounters "to King Hu's valedictory "Painted Skin," the 1980s Hong Kong ghost film cycle produced a stylish and distinctive body of work that compares with the best of Universal and Hammer.
