Eight movies into the franchise, and we are introduced to rock bottom
Simon Loui is Bud Pit, an out of work movie maker. He moves his family to the New Territories to save on the rent. So we put up dramatic non-scares like a crummy landlord, a barking dog, taoist prayer slips on the walls, all of which generate a vague sense of unease, as if I could be doing all kinds of more constructive and interesting things with my time. About forty minutes later the plot finally kicks in, which concerns their beautiful neighbor, possessed by the spirit of a woman looking for her missing child. Bud Ling (Helena Law Lan) must put together a little ceremony with the help of her sons to find the boy, alive or dead. Pretty lackluster, but there is a heart-ripping-out scene midway through, and a finger cut towards the end reminiscent of the classic SNL Julia Child sketch.
