Commentary On Fire 4: Scared Stiff (1987)

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.

For those without the dvd, the commentary is available timed to video, via this playlist link or the video below:

 

Podcast On Fire 43: Urban Hong Kong Celebrity Survivor

Sans Mike Banner, Stoo and Ken are joined by James Aylmore but before, Ken feels the need to spoil the entire plot of Scared Stiff (starring Eric Tsang, Miu Kiu-Wai and Chow Yun-Fat) so if you desperately want to avoid hearing about its ending (you should in some ways avoid the flick to tell you the truth), skip listening between 00:03:00 to the 00:20:00. We will then be back to discuss the latest development in the already old Edison Chen Sexy Photo Gate. Next development: You’re off the island, son!
