Let’s talk some fucking partying! With Herman Yau. Partying from 2007 like it’s 1993 as he returned with a Cat III black magic movie at that time starring Mark Cheng and called Gong Tau: An Oriental Black Magic and we watch Loletta Lee go from cute girl in a variety of 80s movies to nude girl in a variety of 90s movies as we look at Crazy Love aka The Fruit Is Ripe.
Ken’s note: At 58m 43s you will hear a slight shift in recording quality. For the remainder of the show we had to rely on a backup recording as my software didn’t record the last half of the show.

Coming up on the mighty Podcast On Fire, Ken confesses he knows TOO much about filthy Hong Kong cinema, Stoo is too stupid to get the love for French cinema evident in Johnnie To’s Sparrow and we pay our respect to late cult hero of the Hong Kong cinema screens, Shing Fui-on Also featuring the second part of Stoo’s marvellous interview with John Kreng that offers up among other things his defense of The Master, why it took so long to release and the respective takes on action choreography when done in East vs. the West.
Today we discover that we have lost of the most notable Hong Kong bad guys who left a great impression on Hong Kong Cinema. Shing Fui-On has passed away, but we believe it could have been caused with his “Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma”. Once I find more details I will post them.
RIP Shing Fui-On
Feel free to take this moment to think of your most memorable movie starring Shing Fui-On. Mines would be “An Eternal Combat”.
UPDATED SOURCED INFO;
In October 2004, Shing discovered that he had been diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, which had already reached his lungs. His condition became stable after electro and chemotherapy. However, his mouth was no longer able to produce saliva, and Shing was left with 20% hearing in his right ear. In 2008, Shing’s condition worsened. Reportedly his cancer reached his liver and caused his death, he also supposedly weighed less than 100 pounds. Shing passed away from the disease on 27 August 2009 at 11:45 p.m. at the Hong Kong Baptist Hospital in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Plot: When a Taoist Priest – Cho-Lo (Lam Ching-Ying) and his two understudies (Parkman Wong and Shing Fiu-On) go on a quest to stop an Evil Japanese Ghost from killing villagers. They find themselves thrown one thousand years into modern day Hong Kong. Separated from his understudies, the priest ends up in a insane asylum when he tells people that he is a ‘Taoist Priest hunting down a Japanese Ghost’.
The Priest gets nicknamed ‘Teacher Hut’ by his asylum buddies and they even manage to help him escape from the asylum to search for his understudies. The Priest takes refuge in one of the asylum councilors homes, councilor Gigi (Joey Wong) believed in Cho-Lo’s story about the past and wants to help reunite him with his understudies, Wong and Ma.
Both Wong and Ma ended up arriving in a church, scared of their new surroundings they decide to hide in the church’s spare room, burning the bibles and cooking Cho-Lo’s carrier pigeons for food. The priests soon discover that the two are burning their precise bibles and throws them out on the streets looking for their teacher and something to eat!
Strangely enough the Japanese Ghost ended up at the Church the night both Wong and Ma arrived, but the power of a giant cross on stage absorbs him! The only way the ghost can get out is by possessing a human. The Ghost manages to posse the body of Gigi’s ex-boyfriend Ben (Anthony Wong). Now with the ghost taking over Ben, Cho-Lo and his disciples must save Gigi from the Ghost and find some way back to Ancient China. Read the rest of this entry »
