The Skeleton Tower under the Sea saga continues with its second film. The Crab Beauty and Ching Tin-shou have married, but the jealous Rooster Spirit schemes to have the Crab Beauty and her two comrade-in-arms confined in the underwater Skeleton Tower. To save our heroine, Tin-shou and his son venture to Heaven for the help of its best warriors. However, the Rooster Spirit sucks their spirits dry when their quest fails, turning them into heart-less ghosts. The Crab Beauty manages to fight her way into hell for the release of the captured souls, but the conservative-minded Lord of the Sea is determined to break up the Crab Beauty and her new family. Be sure to pay attention to the filmmakers’ creative recreation of the underwater world, as well as the spectacular silk dance finale featuring Patricia Lam Fung and Lee Bo-ying.
