Storyline

Investor firm employee Pat (Karen Mok) overhear a group of girls talk about the haunting that takes place each year in their office high-rise, which leads to the deaths of nine people every time. Meanwhile, Pat's friend, computer game programmer Ken (Stephen Fung), runs into a mysterious woman covered all in white in an elevator while in the office on his first day on the job. These events precede three loosely connected stories involving Pat, Ken and other office workers' ghostly encounters in three different office divisions within the building. Written by Oliver Chu

Mostly Clever

HAUNTED OFFICE continues the Hong Kong love affair (or is that cashing in?) of all things ghosts and pretty young ladies with the ability to see ghosts. In this case, Qi Shu and Karen Mok brackets a 3-episode movie all set in a haunted office building. The movie is a number of clever twists, and even the reason for the hauntings gets a thumbs up for being logical -- in the sense that the deaths weren't random, not that the ghost stories make sense.

Of the three, Karen Mok's bathroom shenanigans was the weakest, with Qi Shu's last story being the most effective. The middle story, about a greedy executive who gets his just desserts, is also rather entertaining.

All in all, one of the better horror outings from Hong Kong.

6 out of 10.
