Director Lung To's supernatural comedy has everything you want for in a film: thrills, chills, romance and even a good dose of humor. To deliver the film's comedy quotient, Lung rounded up four jolly, hefty stars as the comic relief in this spooky story about a traveling couple (Patricia Lam Fung and Woo Fung) who are attacked by a green creature with fangs. As the couple's loyal servants, Pang Pang and Leung Sing-po steal the show as the plump duo try to fulfill their obligations to their employers volunteering to catch the creature, only to fail at every turn due to their cowardice and clumsiness.
