This impressive and unusual jet-black comedy stars Eric Tsang as a homicide detective who accidently stabs his girlfriend while wrestling with a murderer. The killer returns later and squeezes her wound until it ruptures, causing her death. But the wily Tsang photographs his girlfriend's corpse in a wedding dress, tricking the killer into believing she is not dead and causing him to return for a second try. When he does, Tsang is waiting, having rigged the corpse like a marionette and causing it to shoot its own murderer. Danny Lee and Dick Wei co-star in this decidedly offbeat attempt at gallows humor, which works extremely well under the direction of action specialist Frankie Chan.
