Summary
  A roving ghost spirit (JOEY WANG) controlled by Ying Yang the Evil paints her face in the guise of a concubine. Her spirit can only be released by a ghostbusting monk who comes to her rescue. [Tai Seng Catalog] Mr Wong invites lonely traveller Yau Fung home, carried away by his lust and not realizing she's a ghost. Mr Wong and his wife (he proposed to take Yau as a concubine) then run for help, which arrives in the form of Taoist monk Cheng To Ling and his assistant (who accosted Mr Wong before as a seller of dog meat noodles). Yau pleads that she is a good ghost, but she needs help to reincarnate, so she sets of with the Taoists to seek help. After directions from The Purple Monk, they find Tai Yuet, who is powerful enough to fight Yau's semi-estranged husband, the Demon King (who has, in the interim, killed lots of the villagers and taken over Mr Wong's body).
