A spooky yet dramatic horror anthology.
5 April 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a horror anthology of three stories from Hong Kong, titled "Headless Soul," "Hit & Run" and "Midnight Dinner," each dealing with paranormal activities that begin at the stroke of midnight.

The acting was very well done, each character giving a remarkable portrayal of their respected characters with just a right a mount of creepiness factor, drama and humor.

"Headless Soul" is a murder mystery where police officer Fung (Jerry Lamb) was on the night shift at a murder scene and tasked to locate the victim's missing head. It's an eerie story with enough creepiness to make the hair stand on the back of your neck. The dark atmosphere surrounding the murder scene and the suspense involving the missing head was perfect for this horror movie. You'll be left wondering if something will jump out at you.

"Hit & Run" involves reckless drivers Yan (Elvis Tsui) and his wife, Mei (Liz Kong), who accidentally ran over a pedestrian (Wing-Chung Leung), but were unable to locate his body afterward. When the man mysteriously reappears in the apartment building located across Yan and Mei's home, they were left wondering whether he's playing a mean trick or is a ghost. This is a humorous as well as an intriguing story, cleverly done to generate enough mystery to keep you entertained and guessing at the unknown purpose of the hit-and-run man.

"Midnight Dinner" involves Shing (Anthony Wong Chau-Sang) and his dysfunction family. Seven days after the passing of Shing's mother (Lan Law), her ghost returns to visit the family, making dinner for them and hoping to bring them closer together. Having a ghost for dinner is definitely an out-of-this-world event and the spookiness in this dark story was brilliantly done. However, this story was also touching and heartfelt at the same time; we see Lan Law's character portrayed as a shunned and lonely family member when she was alive, but, when Shing and his family began to reconcile and treat her with more love and respect, it will send you heartwarming chills. A very meaningful story.

Overall, this is an excellently made anthology - well-balanced with creepiness, humor and drama.

Grade A
