The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yang

(神探蒲松齡)

 

 

Synopsis:

The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yangis based on Pu Songling, an historical figure, and his classic novel, Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. This period comedy brimming with fantastical, oriental elements leads the audience on a heady and exhilarating adventure with Pu Songling and a motley group of demons. Directed by Vash Yan (Into the Brain, Bugs) the film boasts the international superstar Jackie Chan (Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon) as its hero. Naturally, the action legend leads a star-studded cast, including Ethan Juan (My Queen, Monga), Elaine Zhong (Youth) and actor and singer Austin Lin (Somewhere I Have Never Traveled, At Cafe 6).

 

The barrier protecting humans from the realm of demons has fallen. The King of Demons sends Songling (Chan) in the guise of a master detective to track down every last beast, aided by a group of friendly spirits and a police detective named Fei (Lin). Songling learns that teenage village girls are being abducted by the beautiful demoness Xiaoqian (Zhong) and also encounters another spirit hunter Chixia (Juan) who tells of the tragic transformation of Xiaoqian from human to soul-sucking spirit.  And so, instead of entrapping demons, Songling must now save one.
