Halloween is on the way and our thoughts naturally turn to horror - and to Hong Kong cinema's rich and varied history with the genre. Over the decades, the city's filmmakers have always been happy to plunder when it comes to source material - sometimes lifting not just bits and pieces from other films but whole scenes, while also throwing distinctly local flavours into the mix. 10 gruesome cinematic slashers to get you in the mood for Halloween For sure, there have been as many misses as hits, but horror Hong Kong style has never been anything less than entertaining. Bio-Zombie, 1998. Director: Wilson Yip Wai-shun. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then zombie filmmaker extraordinaire George A. Romero must have been blushing when Wilson Yip Wai-shun gathered his cast inside a shopping mall and ranged the forces of the undead against them. Yip doesn't so much borrow from Romero as restage entire set pieces from his more famous films. But the zombies could only have been made in Hong Kong. You know the shocks are coming before they hit the screen, but they make you squirm all the same. A Chinese Ghost Story, 1987. Director: Ching Siu-tung. It's fair to say that only the Hong Kong film industry in its prime would have attempted to combine horror, romance and comedy -and to make it all seem so natural. Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing and Joey Wong Cho-yee are the pair whose love blossoms despite the fact she is dead. Even the fact that she tries to lure him into the afterworld doesn't seem to matter as Cheung's character - passions stirred even though they can never fully be sated - tries to help free her from purgatory. Dream Home, 2010. Director: Pang Ho-cheung. Biting satire mixed up with sheer brutality mean this film is not for everyone's tastes, but there's no denying you are taken on one wild ride. Josie Ho Chiu-yi shines as the young woman whose dreams of owning her own home are constantly thwarted by forces that might be familiar to many Hongkongers. Pang Ho-cheng and company seem intent on pushing the boundaries of taste to their extremes, but don't be deceived by all the blood and gore: there are some important social messages here if you have the stomach for them. Dumplings, 2004. Director: Fruit Chan Gor. The joy in any Fruit Chan production is the director's fondness for his hometown and its citizens' many foibles. Source: www.scmp.com
