A ghost movie that loses steam.
18 November 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Another ghost movie starring Vampire Buster actor Lam Ching-Ying, where he pairs with actress Sandra Ng, who plays a psychic woman visiting Hong Kong from the mainland. Her bus crashes on route, killing everyone on board except her. She later discovers that the deceased have been resurrected, and seeks the help of a Taoist Priest (Lam Ching Ying) to help her put the deceased's souls to rest.

The plot outline of the movie sounds impressive; however, this movie starts off really slow and has a difficult time gaining steam throughout. There are more goofy slapstick comedy than scary moments, and there are poor sexual elements inserted into the film, mostly at the expense of Lam Ching-Ying. The acting is average at best and the ghost effects are nothing like those of the 80s.

Sandra Ng as the psychic girl could go through walls and make people's vital organs appear in her hands - something that is too imaginative even for this type of movie. This comes to show how crazy Hong Kong Cinema can be.

The quality of Hong Kong's ghost comedies peaked in the late 80s to early 90s, and slowly begins, unfortunately, a rate of decline. This film is part of that decline.

Grade D
