Storyline

Angie (Sally Yeh), a college student from Canada, returns to her native Hong Kong to work on a Master's thesis focusing on the superstition. Her topic will get much-needed attention as the spacious apartment rented out to her by women-crazed real estate broker Hansom Wong (Raymond Wong) is haunted by the ghost of a singer, whose life was cut short due to a triangle relationship argument. The ghost appears thereafter and, joined by cop Valentino Chow (Yun-Fat Chow), the three attempt to appease the spirit and send her back to the afterlife. Written by Oliver Chu

Sad early YU film.
23 September 2002 | by (San Diego,Ca) – See all my reviews



Ok this man made some genius films later on,and damn i think Freddy vs. jason has a chance, but this film is awful. Horrible attempts at comedy that are not funny and just boring overflow in this film. It has no fright alot all i suppose it was a horror film. Bad. Watch the bride with white hair again instead.
