Storyline

The second chapter of the "Troublesome Night" series, this movie consists of three stories. The first story is about a girl that called a radio show for advice and comfort after her boyfriend died tragically. One of the station DJs unconsciously suggested that she should commit suicide if she wants to be reunited with her beau. Unfortunately, the girl takes the suggestion and the DJ becomes racked with guilt as the girl's ghost returns to haunt him. The second story is about a group of friends voyage to the sea. During the trip, they encountered mysterious events after they rescued an eerie woman from a boat wreckage. The third story is about another DJ that quit his job after the untimely deaths of his co-workers. To escape the pain, he becomes a street racer. But, his thrill rides were hindered when he stumbled upon a sinister spirit by the roadside. Written by Oliver Chu

Troublesome Night 2 a little more troublesome.
8 April 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is the second film in Hong Kong's Troublesome Night movie series, a collection of films whose stories are based on the supernatural and features creepy ghosts. The second Troublesome Night movie is a step-down from the original movie in my opinion, as I thought it was more gloomy and depressing.

The first story is about a girl named Anita (Amanda Lee) who was mourning the death of her boyfriend. She commits suicide and, later, her ghost haunts DJ Cheung Fat (Allen Ting) because he made the suicide suggestion to Anita, as he thought she could reunite with her boyfriend in death. Not a very scary story; it's more of a sappy puppy love story with Amanda Lee playing the part of the ghost.

The second story is about a group of friends' discovery of a mysterious woman (Liz Kong) from a boat wreck during an out-to-sea trip. After rescuing the woman and sheltering her on their boat, supernatural events start to happen. This is the creepiest of all three stories, in my opinion. With no where to turn to in the middle of the sea, the humans are left fending for themselves with limited resources as they get overwhelmed by the ghosts and their dastardly deeds.

The third story is about DJ Sam (Louis Koo), who quit his job because of the deaths of his co-workers. To escape the pain, he becomes a street racer. But, he encounters an evil ghost as he races down the lonely streets at night. Again, not a very scary story, but it features a sinister ghost as a force to be reckon with.

Overall, this film is pretty fast-paced from start to finish and features some good acting and good special effects. The three stories gave an overall eerie and ghostly atmosphere, but the plots themselves were less entertaining and intriguing and unfortunately let our human protagonists suffer the most.

Grade C+
