A Chinese Ghost Story

Synopsis: Ning Tsai-Shen, a humble tax collector, arrives in a small town to carry out his work. Unsurprisingly, no-one is willing to give him shelter for the night, so he ends up spending the night in the haunted Lan Ro temple. There, he meets Taoist Swordsman Yen Che-Hsia, who warns him to stay out of trouble, and the beautiful Nieh Hsiao-Tsing, with whom he falls in love. Unfortunately, Hsiao-Tsing is a ghost, bound for all eternity by a hideous tree spirit with an incredibly long tongue that wraps itself round its victims and sucks out their life essence (or 'yang element')...

- Go...

Be careful...

Don't fall off...

My leg...

As we go on like this,

we would be crippled...

before we find the water source.

How could you go up to the mountain

for being so fussy?

We'd better unshackle them.

It'd be better for them to walk.

No way.

They just committed small crime,

they shouldn't be punished like this.

What do you mean?

They are all murderers.

Murderers?

If they are not,

who would go with you?

It's fine, just be careful.

In fact, you'd better watch out for

those on the mountain...

What?

Nothing... be careful.

Watch out.

Mr. Ning,

look...

Keep digging.

Go ahead.

Look, there have been dead branches

all over as we go along.

But there are fresh plants and flowers here.

We'd have water here.

Right.

We will find the water source very soon.

That's good.

Keep an eye on them.

Don't worry.

Hey... do not slacken.

Candy for you.

Mr. Ning!

Why is the sky so weird?

Dunno.

Let's go down. It's getting dark,

why should we stay here?

Don't be silly,

it would be worse for going down.

Any where we can stay?

There's a temple right ahead.

Let's pack them up, let's go, hurry.

Hurry

Hurry...

You go ahead, I will pack.

Move it.

Water!

There's water ahead...

Water!

Water...

Help me.

It's water...

Can we drink?

What's this?

I'd like to check the depth.

Maybe it's the water source

we are looking for.

Great!

You are doing well today.

Where are they?

I will look for them... don't let them run.

What are you afraid of? Am I ugly?

No.

Miss, what are you doing?

I am doing what you guys love to do.

Miss, stop that, you can't do that...

Lou Lou told us we have to

be passionate to our guests.

Don't you like it?

No... I haven't...

I got it.

You haven't done that and it doesn't mean

that you don't like it.
