Lucky Cat S11 E06 - Halloween Tunes & London Korean Film Festival

In this week's episode I play some spooky tuneage for Halloween, pay tribute to the sadly departed HK movie legend Tien Feng and interview Hyujin Cho, producer of the London Korean Film Festival.

The London Korean Film Festival celebrates it's 10th year in 2015 with a bumper programme.  I'm very excited that director Chung Chwang Hwa will be giving a Q&A and 3 of his films will be screening:

  • Voodoo Women  - Smiley Smith (Zombie Horror CD Collection, Chrome Dreams CD)
  • Vampire - The Upsetters (Loch Ness Monster, Trojan LP)
  • Legend of Sleepy Hollow  - The Monotones (Zombie Horror CD Collection, Chrome Dreams CD)
  • Dracula Prince of Darkness  - King Horror , thought to be Laurel Aitken (Loch Ness Monster, Trojan LP)
  • Kung Fu Master  - Solo Banton (Music Addict, Jahtari EP)
  • Last Blade  - Disrupt (Music Addict, Jahtari EP)
  • Yunnan Reggae  - Lao Hei (soundcloud)
  • Arriran  - Various (Korean Folk Volume 1 LP)
  • Zombie Jamboree  -  King Flash and the Calypso Carnival (Zombie Horror CD Collection, Chrome Dreams CD)
  • Duppy Dance  - Aquarius Soul Band (Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2015)
  • Hell Below  - Crystal Generation (Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2015)
  • Mr Brown  - Cliff and the Organizers (Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2015)

The Taiwanese director made these films in Korea with Korean cast and crew...including the 1967 martial arts movie A Swordsman in the Twilight.

There are also more populist movies in the Audience Choice strand of the festival.  HK actor Simon Yam stars alongside Kim Yun-seok, Kim Hye-soo, Lee Jung-jae and Gianna Jun in the heist movie The Thieves, which in 2013 was the secondhighest grossing movie of all time at the Korean box office.
