Chinese Ghost Story, Abridged
23 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film has recently been released on the "grey" market legally tolerated release of films with questionable copying license) as "Way of the Fox". When I first saw it I was impressed with what I believed to be a well-made B-movie prototype used for Ching Siu Tung's "Chinese Ghost Story" trilogy. But apparently, "Fox" was produced after the first 2 "Ghost Story" films, simply based on the same literary material. In which case, I must admit disappointment.

"Fox" is a well-made Action/ Romance/ Adventure/ Fantasy film, with fairly strong performances by all concerned. The story is a folk-tale, about the spirit daughter of the god of foxes, forced into service to the god of snakes, falling in love with a human scholar/ priest who happens to know a warrior/ priest who is dedicated to destruction of all such spirits. the problem is that Ching Siu Tung's variation of this story, which studies it in detail, is such a magnificent monument in the Hong Kong "New Wave" of the later '80s/ early '90's, one has to wonder why anybody would try to compete with it in such a compressed and low-budget version of the same story.

An enjoyable B-movie on its own terms; try to forget that you've seen it before in better detail. Compare it instead to the earlier. 1970's effort at filming this story, "Killer of snakes, Fox of Shaolin" (w/ Carter Wong), which, if it weren't so slow, would be laughable.

"Ghost of Fox" is no "Chinese Ghost Story" - but at least it isn't a "Killer of Snakes" either.
