The Raymond Chow And Golden Harvest Era (Part 2)

(1981-1989 – The Three Dragons)

After the early 1980’s, Golden Harvest started to branch out into the modern-day world leaving behind the Kung Fu cinema age and progressing into something massive. From 1981 onwards, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao (The Three Dragons) were about to embark on a sensational journey, progressing from there Kung Fu genre into modern-day Martial Arts and stunt work, something Shaw Brothers were left behind and Golden Harvest was to be the new global company.

Jackie Chan back then headed to the United states to try to break into the international market, but the movies he appeared in didn’t really take off and Jackie was also disappointed with the filming of The Big Brawl. Jackie felt he never had chance to show off his action choreography and wasn’t given the space to add his world of experience to the movie. Although it was Directed

Lam Ching Ying Vs The Dead: Top 10 Movies

Lam Ching Ying is my favorite star in any Horror movie, weather it be taking on hopping vampires or just plain old spirits, no one does it better than lam.

His roles in the Mr.Vampire movies show his skills as an actor, with great comic timing which goes well with his serious acting side, which we dont normally get to see on screen. This role would make him, not just a big star in Asia but also worldwide as the master of Vampire killers.

I hope you enjoy my top 10 list and please feel free to write your own favorites in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Vampire Thriller Rigor Mortis Marks Juno Mak Directorial Debut

Hong Kong pop-star turned actor Juno Mak, who has given impressive performances in such films as Revenge: A Love Story and Let's Go! (both directed by Wong Ching Po), has revealed to Twitch that production is underway on his directorial debut. Supernatural thriller Rigor Mortis harks back to the classic Chinese vampire movies of the 1980s, in particular the Mr. Vampire series, which starred Lam Ching Ying as unibrowed Taoist priest Master Kau, ably supported by Ricky Hui Koon Ying and Chin Siu Ho. Eschewing much of the comedic tone of those films, Mak brings back Chin (the only surviving member of that original golden trio) to play a tortured version of himself in a much darker, more introspective horror film. Written by Philip Yung (Glamourous...

I thought it was about time i did a post on the great vampire buster of all time, yes you got it, lam Ching Ying. This will be listing all the movies and tv series where Lam Ching Ying either stars in or takes on the hopping vampires and evil spirits.

His roles in the Mr.Vampire movies show his skills as an actor, with great comic timing which goes well with his serious acting side, which we normally get to see on screen. This role would make him, not just a big star in Asia but also worldwide as the master of Vampire killers.

Other great movies which he starred in (But not in a vampire movie) were the likes of The Prodigal Son, School On Fire, Eastern Condors, The Magnificent Butcher and Painted Faces.

I have been a big fan of these movies since i first watched Mr.
