An early example of Hong Kong horror, THE ENCHANTING GHOST was released in 1970 to critical acclaim and established a future trend for the city’s supernatural-themed Oriental fright flicks.
Baked in the trademark Shaw Brothers atmospherics, this story of a young scholar who becomes resident in a haunted house, whilst also struggling to instigate a new romance, features some spooky set pieces, a potent aura of lovelorn macabre and a growing sense of ghoulish whimsy. Predating the classic Japanese creeper HOUSE (1977), but featuring some thematic similarities, this ghostly terror tale is a vital addition to any collection of classic Asian cinema – and a vital piece of the Shaw Brothers puzzle which 88 Films is proud to present in spine-tingling HD!!!
