Aro Recommended Encounters of the Spooky Kind


aka: Gui da gui
Hong Kong 1980, 98 minutes
Dir. Sammo Hung
In English, Cantonese with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure, Horror / Martial Arts, Vampires, Spoof


Aroview: A groundbreaking Hong Kong blend of martial arts action, horror, and slapstick humour, set around Hung's attempts to battle the voodoo and hopping vampires that his shrill wife's boyfriend has unleashed upon him.

Especially memorable for the finale in which Hung is possessed by the ancient 'Monkey King', this is remarkably tight and amusing throughout. Certainly the inspiration behind the whole genre of supernatural HK films, eg. MR VAMPIRE, this is still one of the best.
