This is the third film in the "Troublesome Night" series, consisting of three loosely-connected segments. Shishedo (Allen Ting), a mortician, is grief-stricken when his favorite singer is killed in a car accident. As a result, he vows to help her get the most "appropriate" burial. Afterward, Shishedo disappears and leaves his co-workers to deal with the ghostly aftermath. In the next segment, Gigi (Christine Ng) wants a memorial service for her departed mother (Lan Law). Seizing the opportunity, Shishedo's co-workers coaxed Gigi into purchasing tons of service materials from them. Upset at the greed, the ghost of Gigi's mother returns to haunt the workers. Lastly, Hung (Fennie Yuen) was dumped by her boyfriend Daviv because the thought of her working at the mortuary doesn't appeal to him. When Hung does the unthinkable to escape the pain, Daviv finds himself facing retribution. Written by
The story evolves around the personal lives of funeral homeworkers. Stephen Chow fans will recognize an ambulance chaser, from a competing funeral home, as the nose picker(not in drag) from several of his films.
Our funeral director visits the hospital to latch onto families with recently departed kin. The story weaves through the greed or romances of the employees. Sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, but never frightening. A so-so movie to kill a couple hours. Not the best from this series.
