Storyline

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 Oliver Chu

Not as troublesome as the second movie.
10 April 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the third film in Hong Kong's Troublesome Night movie series, a collection of films whose stories are based on the supernatural and features creepy ghosts. The third Troublesome Night movie is a little step-up from the second movie in my opinion, as I thought it was a little more entertaining.

The first story is about mortician Shishedo (Allen Ting), who is grief-stricken when his favorite singer was killed in a car accident. As a result, he vows to help her get the most "appropriate" burial. This one has the least scare factor of the three and I thought Ting gave a rather whiny performance.

In the second story, Gigi (Christine Ng) wants a memorial service for her departed mother (Lan Law) and gets coaxed into buying all sorts of expensive materials from the funeral workers. Afterward, the ghost of Gigi's mother returns to haunt the workers to teach them a lesson. This was the most scariest story, I think, as the dark atmosphere of Gigi's mother vacant apartment and the creepiest of Lan Law's portrayal really gave some hair-raising entertainment.

In the third story, Hung (Fennie Yuen) was dating boyfriend Daviv (Michael Tse) and later he dumped her because the thought of her working at the mortuary didn't sit well with him. When Hung does the unthinkable to escape the pain, Daviv finds himself facing retribution. A bad karma story - nicely done with dramatic and good acting.

Overall, this film is pretty fast-paced from start to finish and features some OK acting (some actors were annoying) and good special effects. The plots themselves were less intriguing than the original movie but it's still better the then second film.

Grade B
