Charles, Jon, and Samm are back to share their love for Sammo Hung with this episode all about his groundbreaking horror comedy, Encounter of the Spooky Kind (1980). Sammo stars as an unwitting villager and kung fu adept who becomes targeted by a local sorcerer and has to battle zombies, ghosts, hopping vampires, and more. The episode also covers haunted attractions, kung fu horror more broadly, ensuing jiangshi films like the Mr. Vampire series and Haunted Cop Shop, and some of our other favorite Hong Kong ghost comedies.
