I'm getting this:
http://enlejemordersertilbage.blogspot.com...-fu-zombie.html
- Ocean Shoes vhs of KUNG FU ZOMBIE but I'm told it's the short 80 min, English dubbed version. I also have the UK dvd but this also only runs around 80 min and is dubbed into English. However, apparently there exist a longer 100 min. version but I don't know if it's available anywhere. Do any of you know? Thanks.

The Japanese tape from Daiei gives a runtime of 99 mins on its sleeve, however I have no idea if the movie itself really runs that long (didn't find the time to watch it yet).

Old dutch video release from Standard Video seems to be the short version too, I haven't watched the tape tho but cover states the runtime being 79 minutes.

Thanks. This is probably a matter of the film being shortened for the international marked so all English dubbed versions are most likely the short version. It's a silly film but I still like my films fully uncut, silly or not. :lol:

The release year of "Kung Fu Zombie" still has me somewhat intrigued. The HKMDb states it was made in 1981, which seems a bit old.
More so since the Japan tape says it was made in 1986, which would put it into the category of "Mr. Vampire" follow-ups... Any thoughts?

On the Hong Kong Movie Data base they usually know what they're talking about and they write:

Theatrical Run: 10/01/1981

The one listed on the OFDb from '79 is an entirely different film and it's an alternative title (or maybe even a wrong aka title). The real one is by Billy Chong.

That's certainly an entirely different Film. That label ("Cult Cinema International") re-released many films and put different titles on them.
