    Default Looking for a kung fu tv series with ghosts from the 80s

    Hi everyone,

    I hope someone can help me. I'm looking for a kung fu series that I watched many years ago in the 80s with ghosts. I only remember the theme song. There is a woman flying across the screen when the song starts.

    i watched A Chinese Ghost Story and Encounters of the Spooky Kind but this is a long series, not a movie.

    Can you suggest to me tv series with ghosts from the 80s?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi! I'm not sure. The closest thing I found is the Strange Tales of Liao Zhai. There are various remakes in the 80s, 90s, and even recent ones in 2007 and 2016. I saw some episodes on Youtube. I didn't hear the song in my memory but something similar. Maybe it's a different version or different episode of the series but I couldn't find it online.

    Costumed series, with ghosts in the themesong, during that era which come to mind are:-

    The man, the ghost and the fox

    Keung See Kay Bing

    Serpentine Romance

    Blood-Stained Intrigue

    Do you by any chance recall the tune of the opening song, or who the girl was?

    Thank you for your suggestions: the movies look very good. However, they are not the series I'm looking for.
    I remember only the melody of the opening song but not much because I was very young.

    It sounds a little bit like the song from this series I found on Youtube so I thought it could be related.

    If I find it, I will post again on this thread.

    Hi jego3, I haven't watched Strange Tales of Liao Zhai yet, will try looking for it tonight, and hopefully it's a classic goodie. Can't wait for more of your updates!

    I can't think of any TVB song which is even remotely like that version of Liaozhai. Was it a Canto series or Mandarin series?

    I believe it was Cantonese and TVB like most of the series I watched. However, it was dubbed into Thai so I don't know for sure. I was very young so my memory isn't very good. I remember the melody only vaguely and some scenes but I could be mistaken or confusing different series. However, if I see it again, I will recognize it for sure the same way I rediscovered other series that I forgot about. I will post again if I find it.
    Thanks for your help.

    I've never heard of the man, the ghost and the fox. Looks like a very interesting series. Will definitely look for it. Thank you

    I believe that's where Hugo Ng first met Lily Chung - it's certainly the only series I know which both of them starred together.

    Thanks. I know most of the actors in the Vixen's Tale. It's not the series I was looking for.
