The Skinny: Unimpressive horror-comedy that can't break the average barrier.
Review
by Kozo:
     Yet another horror-comedy, this average exercise is occasionally redeemed by some decent direction. Athena Chu is Jojo, a budding medium who channels the dead Pinky Cheung. She died when evil bastards burnt her and her son to death because of her triad husband (Eric Wan). Meanwhile, Jojo's family provides the comedy relief and cop Chin Kar-Lok lusts after Jojo. Average as all hell. The last ten minutes of this film prove interesting but the first thirty are an absolute snooze-fest. Watch only if you're a massive Athena Chu fan or you simply must see every Hong Kong horror-comedy ever. (Kozo 1998)
