Director, Siu-Tung Ching (Ching Siu-Tung); Hark Tsui. Cast: Tony Leung, Joey Wang, Jacky Cheung, Nina Li.In the heart of a weird wood stands Orchid Temple, a haunted place that is the doom of men. Beautiful spirits lure travelers to their doom. When the lowly monk Fong ventures to the temple, intent on driving the ghosts away, he instead falls in love with the beautiful Lotus. This forbidden passion places the couple in danger from both the local ghostbusters, and the forest's hideous supernational beings. 106 min.
