When a man who specializes in putting on multi-media events is hired to enhance a fashion show, he decides to go to a puppeteer and use Chinese puppets as accents to the models and the clothes. His interest in the show becomes a personal one when he meets one of the models and romance blossoms. An old woman loans him her antique puppets on the condition that he not keep them in the house with him, or grave misfortunes will result. As one might expect, he ignores the warning and then starts to experience a few accidents and unusual occurrences -- including being knocked out by what he thought was a puppet, and seeing flashes of a murder while he was unconscious. Intrigued and compelled to find out if his rising suspicions are correct, he discovers from old newspaper articles that a puppet master and his wife had been murdered many years earlier. Could this have put a curse on the puppets themselves? As the story slowly wanders to its final denouement, director Peter Yung takes the viewers through an ever-widening circle of reincarnation, predestined patterns of events, and Chinese folk religion and astrology. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Even though dialogue between scenes occasionally liked coming from nowhere, being a 1981 HK film, its visual effect plus narrative were still way better than tons films being made afterwards, till now.
