The Skinny: Amusing horror comedy that doesn't have the words Troublesome Night in its title.
by Kozo:
     Wellson Chin revisits July 14th for his latest “date” horror flick (July 14th was the chosen day in his earlier horror film Thou Shalt Not Swear). Legend has it that the Gate to Hell is open on that date and restless spirits roam HK in search of some solution to their troubles. 
     Instead of Lau Ching-Wan and Michael Chow, we get Sam Lee as Joe, a nice-guy delivery boy who pines for his dream girl Mandy (Anita Chan). He makes little progress with her until she gets possessed by a ghost who claims to be Joe and Mandy’s future daughter. She requires help in avenging her spirit. It seems she was offed by an unscrupulous cop (Francis Ng) who framed her for selling drugs and is now investigating the grisly murder of a homosexual by another roving spirit. Joe agrees, but all is not as it seems. 
     This installment returns to the comedic route that brought the series along. Most of the film works thanks to the amusing gags and the presence of Francis Ng and Sam Lee, though Yoyo Mung is totally underused. This is an amusing enough exercise thanks to a few small plot twists and an amiable if not too lackadaisical tone. Overall, the movie is average stuff but Ng and Lee are an entertaining pair. (Kozo 1999)
