A REHASH Chinese Ghost Story
9 November 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

This so called part 3 of A Chinese Ghost Story series is not a follow up sequel to the first two movie but actually a remake/reboot when it take place 100 years in the future with a brand new couple and a new exorcist master but with the same Devil Tree and plot.It definitely got the charm of an over the top fantasy kung-fu movie you would expect from Siu-Tung Ching and Hark Tsui so personally I don't have any problem with the movie except for the fact that the whole existence of it is unnecessary and if you don't mind to watch the same movie as the first one then please go ahead
