For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Zu – Warriors of the Magic Mountain (1981)

Yuen Biao plays a champion fencer who disposes of his rivals with startling ability. Biao is also a student, writing an essay on the Ming Dynasty, which is received favorably by his tutor, who nonetheless sends him to an exhibition on the subject, which is conveniently showing at the local gallery.

On visiting the gallery, our hero is particularly drawn to a mural featuring a pretty hot looking lady, who happens to look more than a bit like Moon Lee.

Also, every time he gets in his car, he sees a hot girl who looks a lot like the hot lady who looks like Moon Lee. He eventually gets to meet and spend the night with her, but only after he cuts his lip fighting off the rival and his two goons. Suddenly Yuen, or someone who looks a lot like him anyway, is in the mural standing heroically besides the girl who looks… and so on.

A Tarot reading reveals that he must bring his past and present lives together. A girl is important. He’s a desperate man, and tears off to find the girl again, only to see her standing in the middle of the road on a dangerous bend, such is the folly of youth. Rather than run her over, though, he swerves, crashes his car and falls into a coma.

Luckily its the kind of coma in which you are transported to… ancient China, where he meets, and wins over Moon Li!
