Hong Kong horror comedy film THE DEAD AND THE DEADLY is a rarely talked about gem in the same vein as Mr. Vampire and Encounters of the Spooky Kind, with a cast of stars such as Sammo Hung, Lam Ching Ying and Cherie Chung.
Wu Ma also stars as a man who fakes his death in order to steal his family’s funeral treasure. When the treasure is instead bequeathed to Ma’s unborn son, his co-conspirators kill him (for real this time). His vengeful spirit seeks out the help of his friend (played by Sammo Hung) and together they seek revenge on his murderers.
Directed by Wu Ma (one of Hong Kong cinema’s most beloved multi-hyphenates; writing, directing, producing, and acting in a career spanning over 50 years) in perhaps his best directorial effort, and also starring Sammo Hung – The Dead and the Deadly is a must-see for both horror and action fans.
The Dead and the Deadly comes to home video, via Eureka Entertainment, for the first time ever in the UK from a brand new 2K restoration!
