Review
by Kozo:

The first Erotic Ghost Story flick is a benchmark of the erotic comedy/whatever genre. Amy Yip is the primary spirit, but there are two others, all of whom are seduced by Wu Tang (Tan Lap-Man), a horny fellow if ever there was one. Heís an evil devil who does the three spirits and dooms them to a hairy fate, so they retaliate with sorcery and plot devices very similar to The Witches of Eastwick. Meanwhile, all clothing is mysteriously absent. Also, someone managed to bring masking tape to the past because itís featured on Amy Yipís breasts in place of nipples.

Ah, the wonders of HK smut. This film serves two purposes: it shows the folly of existence, and it provides a lot of bumping and grinding for the fans. A made-to-order example of a particular Hong Kong genre, Erotic Ghost Story is a complete success in that it does exactly what it's suppsed to do. Despite any thrashing I could apply to this movie, itís quite popular and absolutely should be, as it delivers the goods (sex, skin, silliness) and then some. And even if one does not like this sort of film, we sholud give the filmmakers a credit for trying to muster a plot. (Kozo 1996)
