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

Enjoyable to watch. There are only few Chinese movies can make me laugh and feel entertaining, and this is the one of the minority. I watched the trailer earlier on Facebook, I thought it was a ghostbuster. However it was a comedy movie at all, and I was literally thought the zombies were real and ghost catching. But the plots were really unexpected, not bad at all. Yet ending still was cliche sensational, too stiff to add those typical hongkong elements.
However, this movie is still refreshable to me because I have a very low expectation for the Chinese movies, I barely watched less than 5 ch movies a year, and even at least 3/5 I would feel disappoint and wonder what's wrong with the script writers. Anyway, this movie was fun to laugh, like it just like other nonsense but funny American joke's movie. Besides, this is the first directing piece of Ng's work, not bad, I can even say she is eventually better than many other Chinese directors.
