Wow, a very special Chinese Ghost Story movie
7 August 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Eversince watching the HK 1987 remake by Ching Siu-Tung, I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to watch this original so badly. So much had been heard about the famous actress who committed suicide at an early age. I find this version very different from the 80's version. I think fans of modern cinema will prefer the newer version as there are more fantasy, action and subplots but I find it difficult to compare which is a better movie. This version is more like a classical film and I find the direction and acting better. I find the horror scenes better too. The male lead is no Leslie Cheung and good too but appear over-aged as a scholar. The female ghost is much better and definitely better than the 80's version. I am totally enchanted by her look and acting. I cannot believe she is the same actress who played the female lead in Liang San Po and Chuk Ying Tai and the weak girl in another Chinese classic story, Dreams of the red chamber. She is so enchanting and sexy here. My vote here maybe overrated because of her.
