Encounters of the Spooky Kind II (1990)

This non-related sequel doesn’t pack half as much punch as the original, but it is entertaining nonetheless. Sammo Hung is targeted once again by a black magic wizard and his sidekick, who lusts after Hung’s fiancé, Little Chu (Mimi Kung). “You two are vicious, you shouldn’t live any longer,” says Sammo’s sifu, the great Lam Ching-ying (Mr. Vampire), accurately explaining the story in a single sentence. Prepare for insane supernatural set-pieces, kicking off with a nightmare attack from a duo of flirtatious opium-smoking hopping vampires. Things get even more bizarre when a creepy female ghost assists our heroes against a barrage of beasts, ghouls and other close encounters. This includes a slimy pair of cockroach-infested zombies and a kung fu finale in which all hell breaks loose, featuring a group of deadly mummies and a couple of kick-ass snake fighters. Its the right kind of mad.
