Movie Info

When May (Sammi Cheng) returns to Hong Kong after her husband had the misfortune of drowning on their honeymoon, it doesn't seem like she intends on spending much time mourning. Doing nothing to thwart the rumor that her marriage was based on financial security, May spends the majority of her time eating and watching bad television. After her own brush with death, however, she is forced to take her existence more seriously. Somehow evading death gives May -- or at least her left eye -- the ability to see the dead, and she slowly forges a friendship with a classmate of hers who also drowned years ago. My Left Eye Sees Ghosts also features Lau Ching-Wan, Lee San-San, and Bonnie Wong Man-Wai.

Opening has some good comic moments, but then it develops into a touching story.

Bizarrely hilarious (and not in the making-fun-of-it way). Yes it's another "I see ghosts" movie, but with one foot in horror and the other in romantic comedy. In fact, it gets so sweet at the end, I've never seen it with someone who doesn't cry. Then laugh their ass off.

Scary movies is something that HK cinema has a difficult time with in my opinion. I think because it is so difficult to get people to part with their hard earned dollars, they must provide a little bit of everything in their movies - which is why so many of them are good... they want to make you laugh, cry, and every emotion inbetween... it's a difficult habit to break though and usually when they make genre specific films, they try to insert drama, humor, romance, action and special effects in. This film is no exception - could've been a good film, but it just falls apart and gets too silly. It was also done very cheap - even for HK standards - considering the budget this script asks for. Assuming there was a script... it seemed to flop all over the place like a Simpsons episode. I didn't hate it, but I was disappointed. It'll be awhile before HK takes the crowns from Japan, Korea and Thailand when it comes to horror.
