The Skinny: Messy but amusing sequel to Thou Shalt Not Swear.
by Kozo:
     This horror-comedy from the master (?) of horror-comedy Wellson Chin is decently entertaining, and possessing mostly benign frights. It's only sporadically funny, though when it is it hits the mark with great hilarity. Lau Ching-Wan and Michael Chow return from Thou Shalt Not Swear as the two cops who seem to always run into the supernatural. Here, they chase a ghost (Yu Rong-Guang) who’s brutally murdering people. The plot makes little sense, and the tone changes are so fast and furious that you’ll be lost at film’s end. Still, this is an entertaining flick that only suffers because it’s messy as hell. Lau Ching-Wan had yet to mature as an actor with this one, as he was still stuck in his “acting cute” mode that plagued him throughout 1994. It wasn’t until Dr. Mack and My Dad is a Jerk that he could pull off the cute bit with real depth. One of Michael Chow’s better flicks. (Kozo 1997)
