YesAsia Editorial Description

Sammo Hung gets possessed in The Dead and the Deadly, an acclaimed kung-fu comedy co-starring and directed by Wu Ma. Sammo Hung is Fatboy, a bumbling kung-fu student who works and trains under his uncle, played by the great Lam Ching Ying. Fatboy's scheming pal Lucho (Wu Ma) plots to get rich by faking his own death, but things go wrong and Lucho really does end up dead! Undeterred, Lucho returns as a spirit and asks his old pal Fatboy to avenge his death, but Fatboy isn't given to violence. The solution: Lucho will enter Fatboy's body, and the possessed pair can proceed to exact revenge on Lucho's foes! But if Lucho doesn't get Fatboy home by sunrise, Fatboy's soul may be lost forever...

Nominated for Best Picture at the 3rd Annual Hong Kong Film Awards, The Dead and the Deadly is a winning comedy-horror-martial arts picture that features some of the genre's best actors! Besides Sammo Hung and his unbelievable athleticism, there's Lam Ching Ying, who does his patented Taoist monk shtick, and the young and adorable Cherie Chung, who plays Fatboy's sweetheart, and possibly the key to his survival. Energetic action and entertaining comedy combine in The Dead and the Deadly!

First Press comes with a postcard, only available while supplies last.

Uneven horror-comedy Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
In "The Dead and the Deadly", Sammo Hung stars as Oaf, an assistant to Uncle Ko (Lam Ching Ying), a master of martial and mystical arts. Oaf's friend Ma Lun-Cheung (Wu Ma, who also directed the film) comes up with a scheme to steal a fortune in heirlooms that were buried in his family's crypt. To pull off his scheme, he must pretend to be dead and to be buried in the crypt. However, his pregnant and pretty young wife Lee Yuet-Ying (Hui Leung-Mei) develops other plans when she learns that the supposedly valuable heirlooms are just junk and that the family's fortune actually resides in a bank account that she will inherit after her husband's death. Consequently, she works with coconspirators to ensure that her husband's fake death turns into a very real death. Ma Lun-Cheung's ghost then calls upon Oaf to risk everything in order to gain his revenge on his wife.

It's a sturdy plot served well by spectacularly acrobatic fights and Lam Ching Ying's hilarious hocus pocus. Unfortunately, the plot is sabotaged by too many long, tedious scenes of irrelevant silliness and some distinctly unspecial special effects. Cherie Chung appears in a brief early scene then isn't seen again until the film's final fifteen minutes. The real revelation here is Hui Leung-Mei as the devious wife; she looks great, acts convincingly evil, and manages some impressive fighting skills. This apparently is the only movie she ever made and you should take this opportunity to check her out.
