Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Siu Kar-wing and Norman Law Man spin this horror-comedy about antiquing gone horribly wrong. The film opens with Taoist wise man Cheung Sap-yat (Kent Cheng Chuk-see) being denounced by his child at the height of the Cultural Revolution. While a mob of Red Guards trashes much of the old man's belongings, he begs his son to spare a Ming vase which supposedly contains a fantastically powerful demon. His son chucks it into the ocean where it washes up in Hong Kong 20 years later and is auctioned off to wealthy councilman Stephen Kay (Stanley Fung Shui-fan). When Kay's phony spiritualist accidentally releases the demon, Kay finds himself possessed by the thing. Cheung ventures to the colony (illegally) in order to try to contain the demon once again. Unfortunately, Kay's family and the police make his task all the more difficult.
