King Hu’s last work is a fantasy adapted from Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. Ill-fated scholar (Adam Cheng) encounters a beautiful maiden (Joey Wong) in an alley on his way home and leads her to his house, where he tries to marry her as a concubine, scarce knowing that the attractive face is a human mask worn by a ghost. Terrified, he enlists the help of Taoist priests, and finds that the ghost is persecuted by an evil Yin-Yang King. The Yin-Yang King comes to earth and possesses the scholar. To save him, the ghost and the Taoist priests find help from the Taoist Master (Sammo Hung), to bring all back onto the right track.
