In a haunted forest, a lady ghost (Joey Wong), slave of a devil, must seduce men in order to let the devil take their life. A young taxe collector (Leslie Cheung) passing by the forest meets her and falls in love with her. He'll try his best to save her from the devil.
Tsui Hark cast the actors, wrote the scenario and directed a few scenes. So what did Ching Siu Tung do in this movie ? Even if one can recognize his style in the fights, his other movies have not the same atmosphere, (atmospshere that one can find again in The Lovers). So why Tsui Hark is not credited ? Anyway, Tsui Hark et Ching Siu Tung are a dream Team that makes a lot of very good movies within the Filmworkshop company.
