| Entertaining Shaw Brothers production
Man tian shen fo (or Ghosts Galore) is an entertaining outing by the Shaw Brothers that is equal parts comedy and martial arts action. Two best friends are on a journey to rid themselves of a ghost. There is also a subplot with two siblings (brother and sister) who have escaped to China from Japan being hunted by the 'clan' that they left behind. Billed as a 'horror comedy', the 'horror' is in name only because of the 'ghost' theme...the main female ghost seems downright friendly. Calling it 'horror' is like calling Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein a horror film. It may be given the theme, but the emphasis is on comedic elements in a 'horror' context. The chemistry between Siu-Ho Chin and Cam Cheung (aka 'Fat Chicken') is funny to see. The subtitles aren't bad. The lighting is a bit dark at times, but overall film quality is good.
