Description: Originally titled Zhuang Dao Zheng, the mildly satiric The Spooky Bunch takes place in the Chinese city of Cheung Chau. A Cantonese opera company arrives to present a show for the benefit of a wealthy and influentual patriarch. Both the actors and their benefactor are plagued by pesky theatrical ghosts, led by a female spirit whose name cannot be repeated in polite company (it has something to do with feline feces). One of the actresses, Josephine Siao, discovers that the ghosts are seeking vengeance for crimes committed by the patriarch's ancestors. Written with tongue comfortably in cheek by Joyce Chan, The Spooky Bunch received its first non-Chinese showing at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
