The Skinny: Darker sequel to Troublesome Night that's less funny than the first.
Review
by Kozo:
     Sequel to the original Troublesome Night. Using the popular "three horror stories" structure, this new installment features the same stars as the first Troublesome Night in all-new situations. Simon Lui, Louis Koo, and Allen Ting are three DJs who undergo lots of haunting when various nasty events happen in their lives making them spiritual targets.
     Compared to the first, this film is a lot darker, ending up with a lot of major deaths. The first was almost a curiosity: a languid horror film about strange occurrences. This one goes over the top to indict and then whack most of the main characters. The film does some interesting things, but by the end of the film the plot holes lay revealed. This is watchable, but not recommended. For those that like minor scares, this film is a possible diversion. (Kozo 1997)
