Not King Hu's best, but still entertaining ghost flick
17 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Towards the end of his life King Hu seems to be showing interest in ghost stories and supernatural materials and the likes. Similar to "Legend in the Mountain" (1979), this is essentially a story where a benign ghost asked for the help from an exorcist (here Taoist) to help relieve her of her subjugation by an evil, powerful spirit. Unlike what most people say here, the film is actually somewhat more interesting than most HK productions, although it is by no means the equal of, say, the "Mountain" films or "A Touch of Zen". Certainly, Adam Cheng's portrayal as a frivolous scholar-musician helps, and Joey Wong reprises her role as a female spirit in this tale. Wong is outstanding, as always, in this sort of role; Sammo Hung's acting as the Taoist priest also scores well. Although this film would seem more like the usual HK 1990s film than your King Hu affair, some of Hu's signature marks are still there, for instance in the no-nonsense scriptwriting and the very clean, clear-cut editing. It certainly does not deserve the mere 5.1 rating at IMDb at this time of writing.
