Shaw Brothers Horror

Series Site

"The Shaw Brothers studio, established in Hong Kong in 1958, is perhaps best known for its association with wuxia and martial arts cinema, but in the late 1970s and ‘80s they turned out some of the queasiest, wildest, and most utterly malign supernatural creepshows in the history of the horror genre. In our snooty era of highbrow, elevated horror, these are refreshingly low road movies that get down and dirty, squelching in the psychic muck of primal fear and revulsion—which is to say, nothing short of maggot-munching, mind-melting classics of their kind."—Metrograph
