A Chinese Ghost Story III (1991) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
After being disappointed by part 2, I was very happy to see Joey Wong return as a ghost in part 3. I don’t know what they were thinking with part 2 but part 3 is the sequel I was looking for. Once again her job as a ghost is to seduce men so that her evil master can eat their spirits.
Tong Leung (from Hard Boiled) plays a Buddhist monk who is on a journey with his master to deliver a golden Buddha. They get attacked by Joey Wong’s evil master and Joey Wong tries to save Tony Leung from the demon. Even though Tony is a Buddhist he can’t hide his love for the ghost.
Jacky Cheung makes a welcome return after starring in part 2, and he helps Tony Leung retrieve his golden Buddha after it was stolen. Tony Leung’s master has been captured by the demon and Tony is supposed to repair the Golden Buddha and then come back to save his master. Instead he gets it stolen and it ends up getting melted into a blob instead of a Buddha. He doesn’t know if the Buddha will still have its magical powers but he has to go and save his master. Luckily Jacky Cheung comes along to help him for a very exciting ending.
The relationship between Tony Leung and Joey wong is just as beautiful as the relationship that Joey Wong had with Leslie Cheung. There is a lot more comedy than parts 1 and 2 and also a lot of great one-liners. The biggest difference is that this movie is just completely insane. Tongues go into peoples stomachs, the evil demon is some sort of crazy tree monster, and there are some epic magic battles. Fun doesn’t even begin to describe it. This is my favorite movie in the 3 part series.
