This is so much fun.
Poor “courageous” Cheung, not only is his wife cheating on him, the guy she’s sleeping with is also out to kill him! With the help of a witchcraft scorcerer, which may not be the fastest/most efficient way, but definitely makes for a whole bunch of entertaining scenarios.
Influential martial arts filmmaker Sammo Hung stars in this “groundbreaking” kung-fu horror comedy that introduced us to the “jiangshi genre”. Basically just hopping vampires/zombies.
And there’s so much going on. The kung-fu is impressive, the horror is fun, the comedy is borderline slapstick, and somehow it all just works perfectly fine together. Possessed monkey kung-fu is always entertaining, I guess!
Also, best last 10 seconds I’ve seen in any movie in a long time, I sincerely laughed out loud. Plenty reviews here on Letterboxd “spoil” it, but trust me, it’s so much better to see it in action!
