The Ghost Story
DIRECTOR: HAN HSIANG LI
CAST: CHIAO CHIAO, GING MAN FUNG, CHIN HU
A Shaw Brothers take on the horror anthology film, The Ghost Story uses the framing device of a village elder telling stories to a rapt audience to introduce sumptuous visualizations of these tales of sex, sin, and supernatural revenge, all courtesy of erotic costume drama specialist Li. Each yarn outdoes the one that came before—an expression of the Shaw horror nothing-succeeds-like-excess formula—climaxing in an outré showstopper involving a statue spitting lasers, skin-baring nuns, and warring warlocks.
Screening in the series Shaw Brothers Horror.
