Movie Info

When an amorously inclined young man runs across an attractive young woman in need of his help, it's not difficult for him to rush to her aid while imagining himself in her arms. Though he's married, he retains a strong desire to bed any pretty woman in sight. To his shock, he discovers later that the pretty woman he fantasized about is a ghost.

Audience Reviews for Painted Skin

King Hu's 11th and the last feature. An occult action based on the book of Chinese traditional ghost stories which "Touch of Zen" is also based on. As King Hu states, it is not as good as other works of him, mainly because of the lack of fund and cutting done by studio without Hu's admission (1.5 hrs supposed to be 2 hrs). Also as he states, in the second half of the film, it's just obviously out of money and cannot help but look cheap, although it surely has the touch of King Hu (He does as much as he can in the hard situation). Joey Wang is not so impressive, but Sammo Hung who plays a serious role (a Tao-master) looks fresh. Will we ever have a chance to see the director's cut (even tho Hu's not alive) of this one? (I doubt very much)
