A Chinese Ghost
Story III

Dir: Ching Siu Tung
Star: Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Joey Wong, Jackie Cheung, Nina Li

[11] A priest and his pupil take shelter in a temple only for the latter to meet and fall in love with a ghost. Together, aided by a powerful swordsman, they struggle against the forces of evil to try and allow the spirit to rest in peace. Sound familiar? Yep, this is virtually a straight, pointless, re-make of A Chinese Ghost Story. About the only twist is that there's more than one incredibly cute ghost but apart from one lovely scene which implies a sapphically incestuous sado-masochistic relationship (phew!), it doesn't have anything new to offer.


Not a ghost of a chance
