Encounter of the Spooky Kind sees Sammo Hung play 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!

Not content with delivering a bucket load of supernatural chills and thrills, Sammo also delivers some of the finest action choreography of his career.

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 (hopping vampires), which only a few years later would spawn the iconic and hugely successful Mr. Vampire.

Eureka Classics are present Encounter of the Spooky Kind on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, from a brand new 2K restoration!
