Spooky, Spooky- 鬼猛腳 (1988)

SPOOKY, SPOOKY (1988)
-
Would you believe I have never seen SPOOKY, SPOOKY?  Well, I don't believe it has any dirty pillows on display so maybe it's not a stretch.  But that's not being fair to myself.  I'm not a total perv.  I of course watch more than CAT III films.  And this one is in the ever important 'to-watch' stack.  Below the CAT III's, of course. 
Anyway, SPOOKY, SPOOKY is a HK ghost comedy.  The ghost comedy is the kind of high art that I do believe only HK did best.  Back in the heyday it was one of their niche markets.  And this one was directed by the great Sammo Hung kam-bo!  It's true!
Sammo stays behind the camera for this effort but a bit of the old nepotism shines it's lovely face in the form of Ms. Sammo Hung, the WOWZA YOWZA Joyce Godenzi.  That's reason enough to run this one down.
The rest of the cast is rounded out by old reliables, Alfred cheung kin-ting, Wu Ma, Chung Faat, Mars, Corey Yuen Kwai, Pauline Wong Yuk-wan, Richard Ng Yiu-hon, Billy Lau Nam-kwong, and Yuen Wah, who also did the action directing.  Chin Ka-lok also served as one of the assistant action directors.  Sounds sweet!

  1. Love Hk horror comedies but haven't been able to watch this one yet...do you have it on dvd,vcd or some other medium?

    I fact,there's several films I'm still hunting down since a lot of HK dvd's/vcd's are harder to find nowadays.

  2. I'm not sure if this was ever released on DVD? I do have it on VHS, though. Looks great. Late 80's + Sammo = winner.
