Inspired by the paranormal stories of opera veteran Master Sheng (Ching-Ying Lam), an opera troupe, which includes the daring actor Kuei (Wei Tung), trick each other with ghostly stories and horror tricks. The troupe is repulsed by the overly-confident opera actor Chia (Ho Kai Law); therefore, they play the ultimate ghost trick on him. When Chia finds out, he confronts the troupe, resulting them in keeping a distance from each other. However, the troupe’s troubles worsen when their opera stage is haunted by a mischievous and restless ghost (Yuet Sang Chin).
User Reviews: This movie follows in the same spirit as Mr. Vampire, Dead and the deadly and Spooky encounters, mixing comedy and horror! This flick got a heart and even if it is scary, it’s quite enjoyable for the whole family! Produced by none other than Sammo Hung, with headliner: Lam Ching Ying (Mr. Vampire himself)as the manager of a theatrical group who have to face the anger of an evil ghost!
Hocus Pocus is great fun and I give it 8 of 10!
