silly ghost flick with great special effects and soundtrack
Innovative directing, great soundtrack - this is an early eighties hong kong ghost flick. Silly in the extreme, the trio of ghosts, who all look like vampires, do their best to encourage this hapless guy's lovelife. They appear and disappear using the film technology available at the time in a very creative way. Especially nice is a chair dancing scene after one of the characters sees a picture of charlie chaplin gracing the girlfriend's apartment wall. It's an homage to early cinema - very nice. The music score also compliments the action in a great way, with a leitmotif announcing the ghosts, making the most out of limited resources, combining real instruments with early eighties electronics. Great slapstick fun.
