What we're about

Do you always have to catch the latest scare flick alone because your friends think you are insane to watch this stuff?

Do you get strange looks when you start to rave about '2001' or 'House of 1000 corpses'?

This is your group :) (... and if your friends don't think you're insane please bring them along ... )

We are a bunch of friendly people with an offbeat taste in films, with emphasis on Horror, SciFi and Fantasy.

I hope to see you at our next event!

A Chinese Ghost Story (Hong Kong, 1987) - online discussion

This event is co-organized by The Red Lantern: Bay Area Asian Cinema group (https://www.meetup.com/sf-asian-film/events/280908224/)

===

This popular and beloved classic film, produced by Tsui Hark and directed by Ching Siu Tung, is a standout in the Hong Kong supernatural-action genre and spawned many sequels and copycats. A Chinese Ghost Story stars Leslie Cheung as Ning Tsei-Shen, a timid and likable tax collector. Looking for a place to stay the night, he comes upon a spooky abandoned temple occupied by a tough Taoist swordsman (Ma Wu). Despite his warnings, Tsei-Shen stays anyway. Later he encounters a beautiful maiden (Joey Wang) who he quickly falls in love with. Unfortunately, she is a ghost who is being forced to trap men for an evil spirit who feeds on their souls. A Chinese Ghost Story has been widely praised for infusing the genre with humor, action, romance, and inventive special effects.
