Troublesome Night 17
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Lam Wai Yin.


The Troublesome Night series goes to prison in this episode, about a wrongly accused man (Sam Lee) who hangs himself in prison to prove his innocence. Meanwhile, his girlfriend (Theresa Mak), in despair, kills herself in her apartment. Now the prison has two ghosts wandering around, and they aren't very happy. The young Bud Gay (Tong Ka Fai) gets wrongly busted for cocaine possession and sent to jail, where he meets the ghosts. It's up to Helena Lam and the rest of the regular cast to come up with a way to save the prisoners and calm the ghosts. The gang leader in prison is played by Lee Siu Key, one of the guards, Baat Leung Gam, rounding out a strong ensemble cast. The TN series is on a roll -- this one was pretty entertaining, too. If they keep it up I may have to add another star to some of their reviews. And if Bud Gay has annoyed you for all these movies, at least check out the scene where he gets his head shaved -- for real. I appreciate his dedication. Most of the same cast, the same costumes, and the same sets are recycled for this year's PRISON ON FIRE -- PREACHER.
