January 2007 will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of Evil Cat, a demonic possession film written by a young, enthusiastic Wong Jing. Wong had been screenwriting for about a decade when he authored this film. He's in top form here. This movie features Liu Chia-Liang as a ninth generation Taoist priest who, like his ancestors, is destined to fight the ancient cat demon and protect the world.

In the present day, the evil spirit has been sprung from its prison by an unsuspecting construction crew and begins to terrorize and inhabit several cast members. Director Dennis Yu Wan-Kwong manages to throw in some scary moments, but the whole thing is played for laughs. Wong Jing even appears in a comic role as a lecherous police detective who plays a pivotal role in the finale.
