Eureka Entertainment is releasing Encounter Of The Spooky Kind, Sammo Hung’s action-horror comedy, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as part of the Eureka Classics range from 21 June 2021.
The film is being presented from a brand-new 2K restoration and the first run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase, Collector’s Booklet and Reversible Poster.
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!
