A Chinese Ghost Story (1987)

Ching Sui-Tung directs Leslie Cheung, Joey Wong and Wu Ma in this horror romantic comedy where a sexy ghost who entraps wandering men falls for a hapless tax collector.

Loads of bonkers madness. Claymation zombies, tongue demons and a limbo otherworld full of demons surround a sweet slapstick romance featuring political satire and rapping killer monks. The central pair are delightful, the tone utterly random. If you like The Evil Dead or A Touch of Zen or Splash then you’ll find something to absolutely adore here. How do you say BeetleJuice in Cantonese?
