Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Lau Kar-wing spins this restrained horror-comedy flick about a beautiful lass cursed with terrible luck. Irene Leen (Olivia Cheng Man-ar) has the misfortune of having three husbands die on her wedding day. After consulting a slew of fortunetellers, she understandably vows never to marry again. The ghosts of her dead husbands, however, band together to end her loneliness and find her a mate. The prospective spouse they choose is Bruce (Alan Tam Wing-lun), and they spend much of the film trying to get the two together. Complications arise when another ghost tricks Bruce into venturing to the notorious Haunted Island to swipe a pearl from the Ghost King. To make matters worse, he decides to go on the day of the Ghost Festival, the day of the year when ghosts rise from the underworld and party on earth.
