Summary: Another Sex & Ghost Film
Better than average production values for a porn flick. Worse than average story line (which is saying something for a movie in this genre). What would be found utterly politically incorret in the states (a storyline depecting Japanese as disgusting and sadistic) goes for standard fare in HK films; I seen it so many times I've lost count.
Sometimes the humor works in the film for a moment - other times it's very weak and annoying.
In summary, it's about a Japanese company that wants to purchase a house where war crimes were comitted from a Chinese 'uncle' who is dying and the ghosts possessing the home are 'dead' set against it. The use of a body-double for the climatic (no pun intended) sex scene was rather amusing. Guess it's hard to find a porn star with good kung-fu!
