Number eight in the Troublesome Night series continues the trilogy's decline. While still a pretty entertaining movie, the movie steers clear of the really scary and ghostly themes that are supposed to be evident in this trilogy and, instead, relies a lot on goofy comedy and slapstick humor. There are smacks of ghost action here and there, but you don't really see any substantial ghost action until toward the climax of the movie. The suspense is also at a bare minimum.
The movie centers around Bud Pitt (Simon Lui) moving to the country side with his mother (Lan Law) and brother (Tong Kai-Fai). He struggles to find work and, while desperately seeking employment, is haunted by their mysterious neighbor, Olive (Nadia Chan).
The story's subtitle is called "Little Coffin," which should be the center of the movie's emphasis, along with Olive. However, instead of emphasizing on this factor, much of the plot involves Bud Pitt trying to find work and chit-chatting with the village locals.
Aside from the lack of suspense and hair-raising moments, this movie isn't too bad. I was still pretty entertained at the film as I thought it was still a little well-paced and had a haunting music score. You also get to see the return of series regular Nadia Chan starring as the ghost-possessed girl and Lan Law starring as ghost-busting Bud Lung (a recurring character from now on).
It's an overall serviceable ghost-comedy.
