    Erotic Ghost Story

    This unwieldy mix of slapstick comedy, period-set romance, ludicrous wuxia, cheesy horror and soft porn is something that I found impossible to get on board with. It begins fairly well, with a cartoonish gang of rogues getting tricked into romping in the woods with five beautiful women who suddenly turn out to be desiccated corpses, or in the case of the fifth one - the big punchline - just an old lady.

    here lies the point: if I drown myself…

    ★★★½

    The most disturbing image in this movie isn't that final shot, it's the fact that Meg seems genuinely into the idea of shagging that rancid old camp owner.
