Storyline

To help his ailing mother, an un-named young man agrees to copy the Buddhist scriptures in a quiet place, bathe regularly, and avoid the company of beautiful women. With his slave boy, Ching, he goes to live at an abandoned estate believed to have a haunted well. Though he disbelieves at first, he discovers it is haunted by Su-Su, a ghost of a drowned girl merged with an enchated mirror spirit called Yau Ying. She is forced by a poisoned dragon to kill bad people, but claims that he is too righteous for her to harm, despite some ectoplasm-infected attempts to strangle him with her sash. She agrees to be his servant for shielding her from the dragon, and gives him the peace required for him to do his transcription, even receiving the approval of his mother. Ultimately, they are forced to confront the dragon. Written by Scott Andrew Hutchins <scottandrewh@yahoo.com>

Chinese Ghost Story
26 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a favorite at the time the English language trash movie enthusiasts discovered the Chinatown Chinemas. It's a presentable and surprisingly kinky example of their product.

The plot is the familiar one, best aired in King Hu's LEGEND OF THE MOUNTAIN - romance between scholar and ghost girl. This one is spiced up by a hero in see through with a boy servant who gets very uneasy when the lady phantom and his boss become an item. The handling is equal to the task, in the opera influenced traditions of the day. The olive green decor and the climax attack by full grown dragon, warded off by caligraphied sutras, are distinctive.

So that was a young Brigitte Lin?
