Trouble with Yao Feng-Pan's ghost movies

Postby heinz Germany » Tue Jun 23, 2020 6:54 pm

Recently watched a with??? - Blood Night Flower (1978) credited Youtube video - English Title: The Terrible Night (see credit captures). But the poster of The Old House (1977) fits the video, so I added the role names to that movie.
The poster still has an unknown missing name (Chan Bao-Ling if I am not completly wrong) playing role Hui Chen...

Furthermore are the movie Old Lock (1977) and The Old Lock (1977) - are they really different movies? Confusing!!

According to Chinese Wikipedia,

1979? ????????????


"Old Lock" (1977) and "Horror Inn" (1979) are the same movie.

"The Terrible Night" and "The Old House" are two different films. They should be split.

Terrible Night is actually alias for Blood Night Flower.

Correct (well, The Terrible Night is the real English title and 'Blood Night Flower' is some kind of literal character-by-character 'translation'.) I did not notice that entry.

Resurrecting this thread... without going into other issues with Yao's films right now (there are a few to cover), I want to move all the images from THIS entry to THIS one. The credits that were added from the credit captures should all be moved too, obviously. The issue is that I don't know what the original data associated with the page was nor what its source was. I see that Wang Chuan-ru still has a couple of other entries on her page with minimal info that only feature titles and a solitary acting credit for her. This might have been one of those originally. hkfilmdirectors.com says that 瘋狂大追求 is an alternate title for To Money with Love, and I did find a content listing for a 1974 Cinemart magazine which listed 瘋狂大追求 as a Fong Ming production. So the whole page should probably just be merged (deleted) with To Money with Love in the absence of any further information on this title. I'm not very good at image editing yet, so if someone else could transfer all of the credit and actor images, I would appreciate that too.

EDIT: THIS entry is also a duplicate of The Tale of Old House. This touches upon one of the other issues I mentioned: 殘燈幽靈三更天 was used as an alternate title for both The Old Lock and The Tale of Old House at different times.

I can take care of moving the images.

I am still a bit confused about all of these films...

I appreciate it. Please do that when you can. Feel free to ask any questions about individual movies or entries as well. It can get very confusing.
