Troublesome Night 14
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Yip Wai Ying.


Here's a novel experience -- I was actually entertained by some of this entry in the neverending series. The Bud family grows by one when Helena Law's ex-husband, "Budcasso," sends her a wedding invitation and offers her shares in his hotel in Shenzhen. It turns out his new wife is a master of Western Astrology, and they fight against each other until the hotel manager (Emily Kwan) is exposed as a thief and commits suicide. Her ghost returns, and only their combined powers can stop her. Maybe I'm just getting used to the regular Troublesome Night cast, or maybe they are improving somewhat, or maybe TROUBLESOME NIGHT 13 was so bad there really is no way to make a worse movie. Whatever the case, TN14 is a marked improvement, and perhaps the series has reached a turning point and will start to get better again. Boy, the eternal optimist, aren't I?
