Director: Billy Tang Hin-Sing
Producer: Wong Jing
Cast: Michael Tao Dai-Yu, Lai Yiu-Cheung, Jane Chung Chun, Monica Chan Fat-Hung, Yuen King-Tan, Lee Siu-Kei, Ng Chi-Hung
The Skinny: Unnecessary and completely forgettable cinematic material from Wong Jing, king of disposable film. Chung Chun completists should look for this film, but do Chung Chun completists actually exist?
Review
by Kozo:
     Wacked out horror/laffer from the team of Billy Tang and Wong Jing features Michael Tao and Lai Yiu-Cheung as a pair of daffy cops who get mixed up in a ghostly karaoke bar. Once upon a time, said karaoke bar burned down, taking twenty-seven people with it. Now they're out for revenge, which means bad things for karaoke patrons and the theater audience, who could never be blamed if they happened to walk out of this useless production. Basically a time filler for the bored, this lazy production really accomplishes nothing that hasn't been seen before. Even worse, the ever-present comedy proves to be lame and annoying. Michael Tao and Lai Yiu-Cheung spend their time mugging, while Fruit is Swelling girl Chung Chun shows up as a sweet ghost who develops a thing for Lai Yiu-Cheung. Monica Chan co-stars as their superior officer, who manages to find the time to get down with Michael Tao instead of performing law-enforcement related duties. The IIB rating is sure to upset fans of Category III starlet Chung Chun. This movie can be sporadically funny, but seeking it out would only risk disappointment and anguish. (Kozo 1997)
