Shadowmancer

Big Trouble In Little China



* Villain Spotlight: Lo Pan:

"I’ll send you to the hell where people are skinned alive! It’s as simple as that! Understand!?"

"Magic?" The darkest magic. My soul swims in it."


Some of the Chinese mythology in the film is based on actual history. Lo Pan is a famous legend in Chinese history. He was a "shadow emperor" appointed by the First Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Lo Pan was put on the throne as an impersonator because the Emperor was afraid of being assassinated. However, Lo Pan tried to take over and was cursed by the Emperor to exist without flesh for 2,000 years until he could marry a girl with green eyes.∞
