"Scream" would have been a more appropriate title
12 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

A third of the dialog consisted of screams. Sound familiar.....actors look at each other, eyes bulging, mouth wide open and then emit screams that seem to go on forever. Actually, in this movie, they do go on forever and by the end of the movie you may be joining them. Not because the movie is frightening, but because of the realization that you sat through it to the end.

The one plus is Monica Chan who is the only person in this movie who can act. Besides her, this movie is void of a script, director, or supporting cast. It's another example of HK going Hollywood. The ghosts have been turned into ghouls, as in Night of the Living Dead, to justify additional unneeded gore. It attempts to be a comedy/horror film, but isn't funny or scary. Would rank this movie at the bottom of the dozens of HK supernatural films I've viewed.
