One of the more scarier comedy/horror films from Hong Kong.
The filmmakers in Hong Kong are known to produce scores of horror and fantasy movies with a comedic twist. This film, however, is what I think one of the more scarier of these movies from that genre.
This story is about Bill Chang who moves to an old, two-story house in the Hong Kong countryside after Bill gets a job promotion. However, they start experiencing the paranormal as an evil ghost plan to take over the family - giving this movie an Amityville Horror-style approach.
The acting is pretty good and the music score is catchy. The plot is compelling and has many scary moments. The filmmakers did a good job executing the ghost parts of the movie, which slowly graduates as the family are living in the house longer, making the movie eerie, frightening, and bone-chilling, which makes you forget at times you are also watching a comedy movie.
The only issues I have with this movie are that I think the scenes with the exorcist are pretty goofy and that the battle scene at the end is a little on the short side. Other than that, it is a well-done and exciting horror film, and does not drag the plot. Go check it out.
