Encounter Of The Spooky Kind Blu-Ray

Encounter Of The Spooky Kind Blu-Ray
Eureka Entertainment to release ENCOUNTER OF THE SPOOKY KIND, the unique ground-breaking action-horror comedy from legendary director Sammo Hung, presented on Blu-ray (a worldwide debut of this brand-new 2K restoration on home video) for the first time in the UK as part of the Eureka Classics range from 21 June 2021

A defining film in Hong Kong genre cinema, Encounter of the Spooky Kind blended kung fu, special effects, and Chinese folklore to invent a whole new sub-genre of Asian cinema, the Jiangshi film, which only a few years later would spawn the iconic and hugely successful Mr. Vampire.

Sammo Hung plays Courageous Cheung, a man well known in his local village for his lack of fear. His reputation is soon put to the test after he is tricked into spending the night in a temple full of spirits, zombies, and vampires!

Not content with delivering a bucket load of supernatural chills and thrills, Sammo also delivers some of the finest action choreography of his career. Eureka Classics is proud to present Encounter of the Spooky Kind on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, from a brand new 2K restoration!
