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')...

"10.2. Erinomainen wuxia-elokuva sekoittaa hienoja toimintakohtauksia, toimivaa melodraamaa, omituista huumoria ja äärimmäisen upeita erikoistehosteita. Yrmymunkin rap-musiikkinumero yhdistyy jostain syystä saumattomasti oikeasti riipaiseviin kohtauksiin, joissa esimerkiksi päähenkilö joutuu juoksemaan karkuun korvat peitettynä, jotta ei kuulisi rakkaansa avunhuutoja ja palaisi yrittämään toivotonta pelastusta. Stop-motion tuo jotain aikakautensa honkkarista normaalisti puuttuvaa, ja "

"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."
