A Wong Jing Production: Our Neighbors are Phantoms.
Our Neighbors are Phantoms (1990) is a strange film that was produced and written by schlocky slapstick film-maker Wong Jing. He wrote the script and had his usual cast of players (Amy Yip, Chingmy Yau, Charlie Cho) star in the film. A group of friends notice that some strange people have moved next door. One of them finds out that their new neighbors are some evil ghosts who want to be re-incarnated. All except a female ghost who doesn't want to hurt anybody (but she has a crush on one of her new neighbors), A strange horror/comedy that's a parody of the Hollywood film The b'urbs. Funny at times. Fun stuff if you can find a copy.
As with all of Amy Yip's earlier films (especially in Wong Jing productions) her characters were usually reserved business women, not the sexpots that she would later make a successful career out of portraying. One of Chingmy Yau's first films and she's portrayed in a similar fashion.
