Spooky Encounters in a Haunted Hair Salon
30 August 2014 | by (Gerst) – See all my reviews

DIRECTOR :– Peter Mak Tai Kit STARRING :- Ann Bridgewater, Mark Cheng Hou Nam, Charine Chan Kar Ling, Rambo Tung Wai Kwong, Peter Mak Tai Kit, Raymond Wong Pak Ming, Fennie Juen Yit Ying SYNOPSIS :- In 1980, a crack team of Taoists (garbed like ninjas!) successfully vanquish a mob of ghosts -- except for 80's demon babe Pinkish Red, who manages to escape. Six years later, Cici Shin (Charine Chan Kar-ling) and her cousin, Lily Li (Ann Bridgewater), open a boutique and need a mirror for their fitting room. The mall security guard finds one for them in the basement but, naturally, Pinkish Red resides within it and, when Cici cleans the mirror's surface, the ghost is able to enter back into the temporal world.

In between flirting with hair stylist Sheng (Mark Cheng Ho-nam) and his kooky sidekick, Rambo (Rambo Tung Wai-kwong), the girls experience a variety of weird occurrences, until the ghost snatches Cici and takes her down to Hell. A former classmate of Lily, "paranormal teacher" Kang Yo-wei (played by the film's director, Peter Mak Tai-kit) has invented a machine designed to tap into the brainwaves of the dead...

Unfortunately, it also has the unexpected side effect of reviving an entire cemetery full of corpses. Yo-wei's uncle (a cameo by producer Raymond Wong) reveals the reasons behind Pinkish Red's tragic history and the reasons for her current actions but it is up to Lily and company to penetrate into the next world and rescue their friend.

MAKING OF :- This little known horror / comedy is a typical Raymond Wong production in most respects but has more going for it than his HAPPY GHOST series. The film was co-produced with Long Shong Pictures of Taiwan and that apparently resulted in an extra infusion of cash, greatly enhancing the visuals, make-up, atmosphere, and special effects. The humor isn't really any more inspired than usual but ABRACADABRA ends up being amiable and brisk enough to be a pleasant diversion that is more successful, on its comparatively unambitious level, than Mak's tiresomely overproduced version of THE WICKED CITY (1992). Fennie Yuen Kit-ying has an unbilled, running cameo as a zombie bride trying to get Mak (and ended up being accidentally punched in the face by the actor / director in one of the outtakes running under the end credits).

RULING: B-
