The horror is lost in the screwball comedy.
28 May 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

So the main plot of this horror comedy is a taxi driver serial killer on the loose, who happens to resemble the film's main propagandist, Chau Wai-Tin (Alfred Cheung). While the cops are out to nab the psycho-path, much of the film is consumed in slapstick comedy and screwball humor involving Chau and his cousin Wawa (Moon Lee), who immigrates to Hong Kong to be with her grandfather (Kau Lam).

There are numerous subplots that turn the audience's attention away from the main serial killer plot, including Chau running from loan sharks, Wawa's druggie friend, and Wawa's grandfather's mahjong games. It appears the filmmakers tried hard to mix all the comedy, martial arts action and horror into one film. Unfortunately, the comedy outweighs the horror elements so much that the purpose and background of the serial killer have been left ambiguous, leaving out needed suspense and ***spoiler ahead*** giving us an anti-climatic end. ***spoiler ends***

There is also numerous cameo appearances made by a vast number of familiar Hong Kong actors, which I thought was wasted away in such a low-budget film. Acting wasn't bad, though.

Overall, it's an unbalanced film. Could have used more horror elements, but the movie did make me laughs on several occasions.

Grade C
