Another 90s HK ghost flick that flaws flat.
This is a ghost flick from Hong Kong, called "Skin Striperess" in English. It features Lam Ching-Ying as Taoism Lam, where he performs all his Taoist magic in a resort, where its owner bribes girls for sex and when things go wrong, people are killed and their spirits roam free. And, caught in the mist are a bunch of frolicking teenagers.
There is the usual Taoist magic but, like many ghost movies of the 1990s, this genre has been losing steam and this movie was no exception, even with Lam Ching-Ying in it. Even though he is the only saving grace in the movie, there were very few charms, suspense and intrigue that are usually found in the earlier horror and ghost comedies. The plot goes all over the place and the adult-oriented material just wasn't right for this type of film.
It won't hurt to give this one a pass.
