"Geung Si Playing Cards" explore a slice of the Chinese hopping vampire, popularized by Hong Kong cinematic scene in the 80s and 90s in a genre blend of horror, comedy and action. Throw in elements of myths, urban legends, modern vampire fiction and recent Chinese dynasties of Ming and Qing (where Chinese hopping vampires stories usually take place) and add a big spoonful of manga-styled characters will give you our latest offering.
These "Twilight Geung Si Playing Cards" are the part one of a 2-deck series on vampires east and west. We hope that this series will contrast the familiar western vampires with the less familiar eastern vampires and introduce, especially to younger backers, to the peculiar epoch that makes up a substantial part of our childhood memories, one that entertained and scared us at the same time.
