Sleeping with the Dead
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Steve Cheng.


Jordan Chan shacks up with the dead whenever he gets the chance in this dark ghost story about a woman who was raped and killed on her birthday and comes back to do in her assailants one by one. Simon Lui is the cop on the case, an old high school friend of Chan's, who is now a doctor. For his part, Chan seems only tenuously connected to the main story line, concerned instead with his wife, who may be having an affair, and the new girl in his life (Kelly Lin), who he just may be falling in love with. Low budget but well scripted and well acted production, showing there is still life (or perhaps just undeath) in the ghost lover genre.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
