Ming Ghost (1990)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2000-01-25
Sounds like the plot of Rashamon ? Sure does, but nowhere near being in the same league.
The pace is very leisurely, the mood ranges from disturbing to violent to just plain boring. The Category III rating is earned right from the opening moments, when Ying's promiscuous mother (the luscious Chan Wing Chi) is caught in the act, and brutally executed by being sliced in half. Short nude/sex scenes are tossed in at random, some featuring Ying's auntie.
Overall : Even as a die-hard fan of the lovely Joey, I found this film just too dull. See it for completeness, but no other reason.
