How to Celebrate Hungry Ghost Festival Aug 15th

Encounters of the Spooky Kind (1980)
鬼打鬼

Fans of Sammo Hung will dig his breakout work which defines the subgenre of ghostly cinema from China. where this actor (as Bold Cheung) is confronting the undead. More zombies are creeping about than ghosts, but the film begins hilariously enough with two spirits arguing over which of the two should possess Bold Cheung (Hung) and the misadventures he has along the way.

A sequel was made. Sadly, it’s not connected to the first film.
