Troublesome Night 19
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Jameson Lam.

By now the most interesting part about the series is wondering if they are going to get to 20. Now, they've got only one more to go. This time around, the cast takes a beach vacation and films it. Anita Chan picks up a pair of sunglasses at the beach. Turns out they are CURSED! Yes, when she puts them on, she sees a horrible crime being committed. When she isn't wearing them, they sit meanacingly on the table. No, it's not possible for the sunglasses to look meanacing, but that doesn't stop them from trying. What they really look is tacky. The usual cast of misfits are all here, including Simon Loui, Helena Law Lan, and Ronnie Cheung. Ken Wong is the guest murderer. It all just feels like I've seen it before, and in fact Troublesome Night 13 is awfully similar. Anyway, next time I'm going to the beach, I'm taking a videocamera with me and making a film. Looks like fun.
