The gates of hell open to let out the ghosts of the dead Chun Sing is visited by his deceased father, who tells the young man that his enemy is a priest who commands the dark forces of black magic. Luckily, Chun Sing gets help from a magic book, a group of friendly ghosts, and a house full of hookers.
So according to the movie's narrator, the seventh month of the Chinese lunar calendar is the Yin month. During this month ghosts are free to roam the earth (for 30 days). Mid-month occurs the Ghost Festival in which paper money is burned and tributes are left to appease the dead.
It is during this month that Billy Chong's ghost father (who apparently had six fingers on his right hand) comes back to tell him that he was murdered by Kam Tai Fu in the Yellow Dragon town and to avenge his death. The martial arts aspects of this movie are typical of the low budget movie. There are aspects of this movie that make it stand out from the rest. It is both comical, serious and most definitely entertaining. Other aspects would include the magic, ghosts and the inclusion of full frontal nudity during the sex scenes.
The movie has ghosts, bumbling drunk grave robbers, magicians, obscure magic rituals, a deadly powerful ghost of a bum, the scalping of dead people, an assault with face cloths, flying fireballs and a villain who threatens to sue our hero for slander.
Even though Kam Tai Fu is the villain, it is his lazy-eyed wizard that gets most of the screen time. We first meet him during his duel with a monk (the first of many crazy scenes). They charge each other with only their index and middle fingers drawn. They are floating towards each other and once they collide a giant explosion occurs. The wizard performs a ritual on Kam Tai Fu that will make him invulnerable. The ritual involves the wizard getting two hearts (the hearts must be from a young man and woman whom are both in orgasm), melting them down and them spitting the liquefied hearts at Kam Tai Fu. The wizard's greatest moment is when he pulls out a wad of paper money, burns it and invokes the aid of Count Dracula. You heard that right. Count Dracula makes an appearance and fights our hero (and the dead ghosts that Billy Chong recruits). There is also an equally impressive ritual in which the wizard scraps his chest with burning incense (ouch).
I highly recommend this movie for fans of the martial arts genre.
