Summary: It delivers.......... in a Ronnie Yip sort of way!

If you take this movie as what i think it was originally made as, ie., a Ronnie Yip movie to display her 'abilities' then you may well find it enjoyable.
If however you are after a horror movie, an erotica movie or a drama, look elsewhere. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, but I guess I wasn't expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised. Definitely a 100% male fantasy movie, with some comedy thrown in, sometimes even intentional!
As I said, I enjoyed it and would watch it again, but I honestly can't say it is a great movie in any way, shape or form. A 5 out of 10 film.

Summary: This is tongue in cheek..

This is tongue in cheek all the way..toliets constantly flushing,catfighting,and a haunted theatre make this more of a lame comedy than horror/drama etc..But it still is worth a look. Veronica Yip looks great and is never on the toliet when a skull appears as the last reviewer stated! This also slowly (and I mean slowly!!) builds into a couple of creepy moments. The last dance scene is really well done.Plus the last curtain call at the end let's you know .."you've been had!" Bravo! For a Yip flick it's not her best..but it has it's moments. The women are all very hot!

Summary: Awful and dull

How could you possibly miss with such a cast of HK lovelies ? Well, this lot managed it. Much of this film attempts to build up atmosphere, dropping hints all over the place that something spooky is going to happen. Trouble is, nothing ever does. The scariest part os when someone surprises Veronica Yip when she's on the toilet, and that's only some guy waving a horror mask. Ha Ping's character says, shortly after this episode "It's shit. It stinks". A very accurate summary of this film. Avoid at all costs, even if you are a fan of any of the lead actors. You have been warned.

Very Dull ! And not even a proper Cat III. This one would be lucky to make PG. The dullest HK "horror" film I've seen. For the first 50 minutes, NOTHING happens. Many hints of scary things to come, which never eventuate. What story there is concerns a struggling theatre director, who tries to put together a dance review, and holds rehearsals in an unused XXX cinema. His troupe spend lots of time going to and from the toilet, which is where much of the "scary" stuff occurs. Turns out the ghost only wants to be in the show, and that's how it ends. Leading up to this, the actors run around for 20 minutes with their mouths open, trying to look scared. The one and only scare, and a very mild one at that, is when one of the dancers is stuck in the toilet where the paper has been stolen. She asks the (noisy) occupant of the next cubicle for the roll, and screams after seeing a rubber skull look down at her. Running out of the theatre, screaming all the way, she drops thw towel she used to wipe her backside. The makeup lady picks up the towel and says "It's shit. It stinks". In these four words, she accurately describes this film.
