  • Ricky Lau – Gui yao gui AKA Close Encounters of the Spooky Kind 2 (1989)

    1981-1990ComedyHong KongHorrorRicky Lau

    Sammo Hung and Lam Ching Ying star in this misadventure into the world of the undead. This is one on the many films that Sammo and Lam did in Lams Horror/Comedy series of films, They also worked on some other HK classics together both serious and comedy/horror.The film starts with Sifu and Sammo and the girl running and hiding. Sammo and the girl hide in an old building to be almost immediately haunted by a hopping vampire that’s not very friendly, there Sammo smokes opium with the ghoul and the stage is set for monster mayhem HK style with comedy and horror galore. I really liked the sets in this film as well as the special effects, I cant tell much on the story so as not to ruin the plot for you. Read More »

  • Ricky Lau – Geung see sin sang AKA Mr. Vampire (1985)

    1981-1990ComedyHong KongHorrorRicky Lau

    Mr. Vampire is the seminal Hong Kong horror-comedy featuring the infamous hopping vampires of Chinese folklore, and it stars the genre’s undisputed king: the great Lam Ching Ying! Kou (Lam Ching Ying) is a quietly charismatic Taoist priest with one goal in life: to take out the undead with his cool Taoist shenanigans. Kou is called into action when an undead fellow (Yuen Wah) refuses to stay dead thanks to burial in a site with bad feng shui. He becomes a hopping terror begging for Kou’s exorcism, but Kou must also deal with his two students Ricky Hui and Chin Siu-Ho. One is haunted by a pretty ghost (Pauline Wong Siu Fung), and the other is infected for possible conversion into a hopping vampire! But when the undead vampire targets Kou’s granddaughter (Moon Lee), all bets are off! Sticky rice, paper amulets, and the fabulous sword of coins are the chosen weapons in Mr. Vampire, and Lam Ching Ying has the skills and the smarts to wield them! Featuring action sequences from the great Sammo Hung, Mr. Vampire is an entertaining action-horror-comedy that still charms and amazes years after its release.Read More »
