Storyline

Chung has a book project that will make his career in publishing: a collector's edition of the work of Siu Lau, a reclusive woman who died mysteriously in 1949. An anonymous benefactor has maintained her house since her death; it's rumored to be haunted. Chung moves into the house with his girlfriend Elaine. While he works long hours at his office, she experiences strange events in the house. She's not sure Chung loves her, and neither is their long-time friend Julia. When Chung asks Elaine to pose for photographs dressed like Siu Lau, Elaine wonders if he isn't in love with a ghost. Plus, are the mysteries of the house about to possess her?

Decent acting instead of unrealistic props.
27 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

A good ghost story with solid acting, especially by Wu Chien-lien, whose character is the primary focus. Unfortunately, I had an early dvd print which was horrible and reduced viewing pleasure, especially in some night scenes. The story line unfolded nicely and was original enough to keep ones attention. It put goose-bumps on me more than once. Would love to see this movie again from a decent print.
