Just a lot of oddball comedy and limited scares.
30 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a HK ghost comedy where a dinner party at a Hong Kong high-rise goes awry when party guest Judy Hsu (Shu-Yuan Hsu) becomes a victim of poltergeists and, as a result, her spirit returns to carry out the sinister plans of the evil spirits of the Japanese war dead that haunts the building. Security guards Chu Bong (Jing Wong) and Fan Pien-Chou (Shui-Fan Fung), fearing for their lives and others, seek the help of Taoist priestess (Joyce Godenzi) to vanquish the ghosts.

While a pretty intriguing-sounding plot, much of the movie is drenched in screwball comedy and attempted jokes that overshadows the ghost elements in the story. It's basically just a lot of all-talk and limited action, with the respected cast of actors, especially that of the stunning Joey Wang, vastly underused. The plot themes go all over the place and there is virtually no suspense.

Some might enjoy the screwy comic relief and some might actually get a scare or two out of what limited ghost action there is. However, this is not one of the better ghost comedies I've seen from Hong Kong. I would give this one a pass.
