Storyline

A quirky internet star, a pair of retired gangsters, and the black sheep of a prolific family of herbalists are a few of the oddball tenants that call the dilapidated apartments of Humble Grove home. Fearful of being locked out by a ruthless property developer with his eye on the building, they've stayed inside for years. So, when supernatural incidents befall them all on one night, instead of running, they turn to flamboyant ghost hunter Golden Ling to perform a most unusual exorcism. Written by Well Go USA

First Nice Chinese One in 2018
6 January 2018 | by ElliesWonderSee all my reviews

Enjoyable to watch.

Chinese movie industry is a mystery, only few movies are really ticket worthy would make me laugh and feel entertaining, and this is the one of the minorities! I swapped the trailer video on Facebook earlier, it looked promising, so I decided to give it a try. I thought it was a ghostbuster movie, during the movie, I was literally thought the zombies were real, and then the witch pretender and the Building neighbor would start their ghost catching advanture. The aroma was cool and built up, then the reverse plots were really unexpected, it turned out it's a pure comedy movie after all. Yet, the worst part is the ending, so cliche and cheesy sensational, too stiff to add those typical hongkong tvb elements.

Anyway, this movie is refreshable. In my personal favorite, I have a very low expectation for the Chinese movies, I barely watched less than 5 in a year, and at least 3/5 of them would let me down, and questioning what's wrong with the script writers. This movie was fun, we can consider it as a popcorn movie like many nonsense but hilarious American joke's movie. Besides, this is the first directing piece of Ng Kwan Yue's work, it's fairly to say she is good enough to pass the standard.
