Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kuei Chih-Hung (aka Kwei Chi Hung, Gui Zhi-Hong) (December 20, 1937 - October 1, 1999) was one of the most popular and daring filmmakers to work for the Hong Kong-based Shaw Brothers Studios, directing more than 40 films throughout the late '60s, '70s and early '80s. Known for his bold cinematic style, innovative use of realistic, on-location shooting and often gritty, controversial subject matter, Kuei found critical and commercial success working in a variety of genres, including the hard-boiled crime drama of The Teahouse (1974) and its sequel, Big Brother Cheng (1975), wuxia classic Killer Constable (1981), and the cult horror favorites The Killer Snakes (1975) and Hex (1980).show more
