Ning Tsai-Shen, a humble tax collector, arrives in a small town to carry out his work. Unsurprisingly, no-one is willing to give him shelter for the night, so he ends up spending the night in the haunted Lan Ro temple. There, he meets Taoist Swordsman Yen Che-Hsia, who warns him to stay out of trouble, and the beautiful Nieh Hsiao-Tsing, with whom he falls in love. Unfortunately, Hsiao-Tsing is a ghost, bound for all eternity by a hideous tree spirit with an incredibly long tongue that wraps itself round its victims and sucks out their life essence (or 'yang element')...

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"24.10. (DVD) Hienoa oli väri- ja musamaailma. Huumorikin nauratti muutamaan otteeseen kunnolla. Kaverini mukaan Aavesoturi oli ainakin parempi kuin ne lukuisat kung fu -elokuvat, joita olen hänet aikanaan laittanut katsomaan..."

"Kiinalaisen kummitustarinan tunnelma on kertakaikkisen upea. Savuiset tumman puhuvat kohtaukset luovat jännittävyyttä, puskista hyppivät lauluosiot ovat niin ikään mieleen painuvia ja tehosteetkin kaikessa käppäisyydessään loisteliaita. En löydä juurikaan tästä mitään parjattavaa, vaikka juoni tuntuukin sivuseikalta ja varsin ohuelta."
