KUNG FU ZOMBIE (1981)




 Very similar to KUNG FU FROM  BEYOND THE GRAVE which came out the next year, also starred Billy Chong and had him battling zombies and a vampire brought to life by a goofball priest/wizard fella. This one has ghosts being thrown into various dead bodies being reanimated to get some chopsocky revenge. Exactly what the revenge was originally for I was never exactly clear since the plots get a bit muddled in the wacky dubbing job these Hong Kong martial-arts films often get. If you don't dig comedy-fu this one is really not for you. It's about 70 % slapsticky cartoonish nonsense and 30 % fighting. My favorite bit is a very quick battle where our vampire kicks his opponents head clean off and drinks right out of the blood-spurting neckhole. I also learned you can kill a vampire with the power of Buddha and a sharp spike through the top of the head. Not exactly a zombie classic or even much of a horror film at all but goofy enough for oddball kung-fu-loving weirdos. Now I just need to watch KUNG FU VAMPIRE and I feel my life will be complete.




Strange that this German video of a Hong Kong film was released by a company called American Video??:
