Podcast On Fire 183: Encounter Of The Spooky Kind & A Better Tomorrow II

pof183

We take a look at when the combo of martial arts, horror and the supernatural clicked, the genre bender if you will in the form of Sammo Hung’s Encounter Of The Spooky Kind from 1980 as well as the sequel to one of the most iconic Hong Kong action pictures of all time, John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow II. With Kenny B and Tom K-W.

twis30

Let’s talk some high class fucking! Meaning we turn to the more explicit, sleazier side of the big studio Shaw Brothers but they were not all about the kung fu and swordplay. Oh, from The Knight Of Knights (covered on This Week In Sleaze 5) and onwards, erotica trickled its way into these classy, gorgeous period epics that could also feature swordplay and gore. That’s where we find Intimate Confessions Of A Chinese Courtesan from director Chor Yuen. We’ll be talking of that as well as the Chor Yuen directed remake from 1984 called Lust For Love Of A Chinese Courtesan.
