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>

Breast obsessed
23 December 2001 | by (Newcastle, Australia) – See all my reviews

Not very ghostly and not all that erotic either. I tend to be harsh on films that rip other films off without offering anything much that's new, and I'm not making an exception here. The rip-off this film does of "Witches of Eastwick" is so lamely done and unoriginal, it's almost sad. At least THAT film had Jack Nicholson at his scene-munching best. Here we have to make do with Manfred Wong who has a nice athletic bod and looks attractive with his rock-star hair extensions, but that's hardly enough to sustain this film.

Nor is the film's obsession with breasts anything to get too worked up about. There is the odd bit of full-frontal nudity (female of course, Hong Kong cinema isn't about to find equality just yet), but time and again the camera focuses on the nearest breast, no matter what else is going on in the scene. This is amateurish film-making, and is not particularly erotic either.

I find it astonishing that 20% of the IMDb users that have rated this film give it 10/10. Perfect film-making? Far, far from it.
