Overview
From Ching Siu-tung, the action-director of 'Hero' and 'Shaolin Soccer', and Tsui Hark, the producer of 'The Killer' and 'The Better Tomorrow Trilogy' comes one of the most-loved Hong Kong movies of all time!

A visually stunning mix of horror, romance, martial arts and eastern mysticism, 'A Chinese Ghost Story' tells the immortal story of a reluctant hero who embarks on a quest to redeem the soul of an alluring fox-spirit imprisoned for all eternity by her vampiric mistress.

Combining the romantic, ethereal charm of Ridley Scott's 'Legend' with the cutting-edge camerawork of Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' movies and the hyper-kinetic fight-action of 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', 'A Chinese Ghost Story' delivers a unique cinematic experience which embodies all that is magical about Hong Kong Cinema.
