Storyline

This Chinese ghost film centers on the theme of the haunted streets in Hong Kong, where four loosely connected stories are depicted. A group of young friends go on a camping trip in the countryside, where Ken encounters a mysterious woman near a grave. Afterward, Ken's life is changed forever as he becomes a victim of ghost meddling. As the friends journey back to Hong Kong without Ken, another sinister story takes place. Mrs. To has a date with her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but becomes concern when he doesn't show up. The outcome of this second story leads to Ken's friend Jojo being courted by a ghost, and ultimately leads to the final story where Peter Butt unknowingly visits a haunted theater with some of Ken's friends.

Several short stories loosely tied together
28 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

The beginning of the Troublesome Night series. A mildly entertaining movie with several stories entwined. Not serious enough to give one goose bumps, but worth a watch on a slow night.

First story involves a group of campers who tented on the beach near a cemetery. The victim seemed to choose the nude swimmer emerging from water over those he was camping with. Good choice. Christy Chung is a wife headed to an anniversary dinner in the second story. Her husband, a real estate agent, is attempting to take a client to view a house. A couple more stories follow making this an interesting and fun movie to watch. May not be the best from the series, but it started everything off.
