I'm trying to remember an Asian kung fu movie.

I'm trying to remember a movie. The genre is a mixture of kung fu, fantasy and action. I think it's a Chinese movie that was made between 1980 - 1995.

Several men were fighting a witch or demon/villain. The woman turned into a witch after opening a magic box or chest. The final fight was in a sewing factory or a textile factory. During the fight, the witch somehow became blind and could only hear. The witch threw stones and other objects around to hit her opponents. During the fight, one of the men accidentally sat down on a pincushion as they tried to hide from the witch. The other man covered his mouth so that he wouldn't scream and the witch wouldn't hear them. The witch was very close to them in this scene. One of the men drank alcohol or another incendiary and blew it against the fire from the lighter while facing the witch. She started to burn and went weak. The men then hung up a large white curtain or placed it somewhere. A Chinese slogan or banner was reflected against this white curtain using a drum. I think it was the medallion that could defeat the witch. This reflection caused the witch to somehow burst into flames and explode.

The following films are similar in content to this film: The East is red; The Heroic Trio; The Scripture with No Words; Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain; A chinese Ghoststory; China Swordsman; Geung see Sin sang (Mr Vampire); The bride with white hair. But these films are not. I've already tried to find the movie with ChatGPT, but unfortunately I couldn't get any hits there either. I would be grateful for your help.

This sounds like a movie I would have saw back in the day, but no title rings a bell.  There were a quite a few of those supernatural themed horror made in Hong Kong over the years.  The pincushion bit should stand out in my memory if I have seen it, so I don't think I have.  I am curious what the film is though.  

Sorry I can't be of any help, but best of luck with your search.

Glad you finally found it.  I have never seen it.  I believe it came out recently on disc.  I may have to check it out.
