The Golden Harvest classic that revolutionized the Hong Kong horror genre!

Eureka presents the Blu-ray for Sammo Hung's 1980 classic, Encounter of the Spooky Kind. 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. In addition to Sammo Hung, this Golden Harvest classic also stars Chung Fat, Peter Chan, Huang Ha, Lam Ching Ying and Wu Ma.
