Summary
 

Scholar Ho (Shih Jun) is charged with the task of transcribing some ancient Buddhist sutras, and travels to an old fort to perform the task in peace and quiet, since the army stationed there were either killed or evacuated. He finds the fort somewhat less then deserted, however, when the mysterious Mr Tsui shows up with his bizarre friend Chang (played by veteran actor Tin Fung). More strange figures appear, including an old washerwoman and Melody (Hsu Feng), a striking would-be scholar who is adept at playing the Chinese drum. To further complicate matters, after a supposed romantic encounter with Melody while under the influence, Ho finds himself morally blackmailed into matrimony. There’s also a mysterious and beautiful flautist who periodically appears to Ho, only to disappear when he gets close. What’s more, the sutras he’s transcribing are said to wield terrible power amongst the demons of the underworld. -- Cal42
