The literal translation of the title of this movie is: the Song at the Midnight.
This horror flick in the early Chinese movie industry made in the pre-revolutionary era China was better than the earlier silent horror flicks made in China in the 1920's, and like its predecessor, it is rather rare.
Like its predecessor, this Chinese horror flicks made a decade later than the silent horror flicks in the 1920's did not do well in the box office because when it was released, there was something much more horrible in real life: China was at War.
