Hong Kong Police hunt ghosts on the city’s streets.

Finding himself transferred to the obscure Miscellaneous Affairs Department, Sergeant Lee discovers that it is now his responsibility to seek and destroy the city’s many evil spirits. Murder and mayhem ensue, as Lee and his mysterious boss, Inspector Wong, take on the might of a particularly dangerous demon. A fast pace and a touch of humour keep the creepy mood buoyant throughout this stylish supernatural thriller.

    Three things I can't stand.


    This wonderfully funny and shockingly terrifying film was worth enduring the witless ramblings of the Festival Pratterati in the back rows for.

    Real scares.

    Real gore.

    Real laughs.

    In an unreal story.

    surprised this is only shown once. i'd definitely recommend this if it's back on best of the fest if you like horror films. very scarey in places with some comdey moments in between.

    Loved this film! I can't say I've seen much Asian cinema but really really really enjoyed this one a lot! Really funny in places, really scary in places, the soundtrack and score used to great effect on that front. I'll be watching some more Asian cinema from now on, not looking forward to the inevitable Hollywood remake of this...

    These comments are spot on; I am really glad I went along. Thankfully I was near the front and didn't have to put up with the journos at the back. .. Hollywood would be hard pushed to match the film's style and wit, and would not, I suspect, choose to challenge the audience to an ending that was so sad and shocking.
