Commentary On Fire 4: Scared Stiff (1987) – You Tube Edition

Here you’ll find  the commentary on You Tube timed to video.

Strap yourselves in even AFTER watching Lau Kar-wing’s multi-mood classic Scared Stiff as the commentary by Stoo and Ken attempts to deconstruct this wild one out of the busy Hong Kong cinema scene of the 80s. Remember the robot thrusting motion come ending time…

Ken’s note: I meant to say Yuen Wah worked as action director at Shaw’s for a while, not director.

Commentary On Fire Tease: Scared Stiff Trailer + EXCLUSIVE Members Only content

Just to get the excitement up to lethal levels, here you’ll find the rather insane trailer to the even more insane Scared Stiff by Lau Kar-wing. Made in 1987 and starring Miu Kiu-wai, Eric Tsang and with an appearance by the hard working Chow Yun-fat,  in the Hong Kong cinema tradition the trailer reveals a lot so proceed at your own risk if you haven’t yet had the pleasure to screen the film. You owe it to yourself and coming soon you can hear Stoo and Ken’s Commentary On Fire on said flick!

Those of you wonderful folks who also joined the forums will also get a chance to TODAY hear to  our commentary on the trailer! If you want to access this exclusive extra, just complete the simple registration on the forums. Read the rest of this entry »
