The Ghost with Six Fingers has a cult reputation. A cherished series of martial arts films based on the serialized novel by Ni Kuang, it was popular in its days but also gained legions of new fans in the television era, when audiences discovered its appeal of stylized fights, melodramatic plots and cheesy special effects. The story kicks off with the appearance of a gilded box, which unleashes a Pandora's load of troubles that take three features to resolve.
