Audience Member Best comedy and kungfu movie of all time... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The Hopping Vampires rocked my world! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a spectacularly hilarious movie about the Jiang-shi and other Chinese mythology, which is complimented with cheesy 80's martial arts and an epic wizard battle ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The cream of the genre. Worth watching the movie for the last scene alone. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review dave j Friday, June 22, 2012 (1980) Encounters Of The Spooky Kind (In Chinese with Japanese subtitles) ACTION/ COMEDY I have to admit I saw this film was a result of seeing "The Deadliest Art- The Best Of The Martial Art Movies" hosted by John Saxon which upon seeing the Laserisc has no English subtitles but with Japanese subtitles shown instead. There is one considerable long memorable action sequence with Sammo Hung Kam Bo duking it out with several soldiers with swords with that pretty much alone to me is worth a price of admission. 3 out of 4 stars Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Dull, dated comedy leading into some moderately impressive action and endearing mystical moments, which indeed still retain some 'spookiness' for the wrong reasons today. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
