Return Of The Dead is a long-awaited sequel to renowned director Li Han-hsiang's first experiment in the horror genre, Enchanted Shadow. However, Return Of The Dead takes a step further from being a sheer representation of classic Chinese literature to being a navigator in the often-neglected dark corners of human nature. The insertion of erotic scenes throughout the film is yet another reminder that indulgence in sensual pleasures is futile and detrimental.
Cheng Chang-ho had already established his filmmaking fame in Korea when he was invited to join the Shaw Studio. He created new fame in Hong Kong by directing (and sometimes writing) such action epics as Valley Of The Fangs, The Swift Knight, and this tale of a decapitating swordswoman who will let nothing stand in her way when she falls in love with a bandit’s son. Chiao Chiao, made famous in One-Armed Swordsman, is the girl who won’t let such trifles as craniums keep her from freeing her man from jail. The one villain who manages to keep his head (in every definition of the phrase) is Fan Mei-sheng. The success of this film really helped the director get ahead in just two years he was to helm the very first internationally successful kung-fu film: King Boxer.
