Storyline

Three vixens have meditated for 1,000 years to able to shed their animal natures and become human. For the final month of their rigors, they have moved near a village where women pray to a god of fertility. One sister visits the god's temple and thinks lustful thoughts. As she leaves, a priest confronts her, warning of dire consequences and of demons that will try to stop the vixens' transformation. Soon, the youngest sister saves a poor scholar from bandits and becomes enamored of him. Each sister visits him, and before long, the youth has made love to all three. After they invite him to stay with them, the playfulness takes a scary turn. Where can they turn for help? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mouth-watering
21 December 2005 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

From the director of the amusing "The Story of Ricky" and the downright bleak "Her Vengeance" comes..."Erotic Ghost Story", a sensual reworking of George Miller's "The Witches of Eastwick". Yes, the film does rip "Witches" off and it does feature some very poor effects sequences (the transformations are like something from the 50's), but...

If Asian women rock your boat, hop on board this erotic masterpiece. I didn't care for the story. I didn't care for the bumbling, hideously irritating character known as "Scholar". All I cared for was seeing more full-frontal nudity of the achingly beautiful creatures who prance across the screen in various states of undress.

There is a plethora of mouth-watering images of breasts, vaginal lips, firm bottoms, tongues, sisters engaged in lesbian loving, masturbation, wind-swept ponds of flower petals, carefree nymphs dancing through fields of swaying grass, you name it, this flick's got it...

As long as you're not expecting anything more than pure female flesh.

It's better than the self-conscious "Sex and Zen" and it leaves its own sequels in the dust.

The music, like its cast, is hypnotic, too.
