YesAsia Editorial Description
Wong Jing's Classroom follows Ling (Jennifer Tse), the new substitute teacher at a suburban high school. She feels something wrong about her class. The students in her Class 4E are an unruly bunch, except for Don Don, who always sits quietly in the corner. Suspecting that her students Gi Gi (Carol Yeung), Co Co, and Fong (Betrys Kong) engage in prostitution, Ling reports the problems with her class to the dean, only to be told that there has never been a Class 4E in the school...
In Patrick Kong's Travel, a group of friends go on vacation in Mainland, during which Bo (Chrissie Chau) gets killed in a road accident. At Bo's funeral, her travel mates (Timmy Hung, Jacqueline Chong, Charmaine Fong, and Harriet Yeung) meet Bo's estranged lover Ka Ming (Him Law), with whom Bo had a heated quarrel on the phone just prior to her tragic death. At the hot-pot dinner after the funeral, a pale-faced Ka Ming reveals to the survivors the secret of his relationship with Bo before going on a killing spree...

Professional Review of "Hong Kong Ghost Stories (2011) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"
Hong Kong Ghost Stories is a film which delivers exactly as its title suggests, serving up two short tales of spooky fun, directed by immortal Hong Kong schlockmeister Wong Jing and the prolific Patrick Kong. Mixing ghosts and gags, the film boasts a number of attractive young faces in its cast including popular starlet Chrissie Chau (The Killer who Never Kills), Jennifer Tse (Bruce Lee My Brother), Stephy Tang (Let's Go), Carol Yeung (Summer Love Love) and many others.
The fun starts with an old school Hong Kong horror type framing device set in a funeral home, in which paper figures come to life and set about making their own film (working in a lame Wong Jing reference in the process). This leads into Classroom directed by Wong Jing himself, with Jennifer Tse as high school substitute teacher Ling, who is given a particularly troublesome class to look after, with riotous students refusing to behave and engaging in after-hours compensated dating/prostitution. As well as having to deal with her own problems, namely a violent stalker ex-boyfriend (Pakho Chau), poor Ling is gradually driven over the edge by her pupils, the school harbouring a dark secret.
Classroom is fairly standard Wong Jing fare, being lowest common denominator stuff which aims for basic and familiar scenes and scares. The haunted school plot certainly doesn't offer anything new, heading for a final twist that even genre newcomers will likely see coming, and most of the frights have been encountered in countless other films over the years, with walls bleeding, toilet stall doors banging, and Ling being menaced by a CGI air conditioning fan. Although none of this is even remotely frightening, it all moves along briskly, with Jennifer Tse likeable in the lead, if lacking in the emotional range necessary to pull off the role. The result is a short, moderately enjoyable piece of ghostly nonsense in the early 1990s Hong Kong style, which like most of Wong Jing's output basically recycles elements of other films, though which passes the time inoffensively - even if this to a large extent comes from unintentional laughs.
After a brief visit back to the paper ghosts in the funeral home, up next is Patrick Kong's Travel which follows a rowdy group of Hong Kong friends (Timmy Hung, Jacqueline Chong, Charmaine Fong, and Harriet Yeung) who meet up at the funeral of Bo (Chrissie Chau), a young woman they met while on holiday in Thailand who recently died in an apparent road accident. Flashbacks reveal that Bo was clearly in some kind of trouble, and when her married lover Ka Ming (Him Law) shows up at her wake, things take a turn for the sinister.
Travel is thankfully a great deal more fun and made with considerably more effort than Classroom with Kong employing his usual kind of fractured narrative and showing a reasonable flair for ghoulishness. Although the actual story itself is a pretty straightforward ghost tale, it's interestingly told, and shows a well-judged use of revelations, enough so to make for a few entertaining surprises and to hold the interest throughout. While there's very little in the way of scares, the Thailand scenes add a bit of colour, and work as an amusing nod back to the days when almost every Hong Kong horror seemed to revolve around horny guys heading to the supposedly wild and exotic country in search of hookers. Kong makes up for the lack of shocks with a neat line in what might charitably be called satirical humour, packing in some HK pop culture references and digs at the entertainment industry, in particular the TVB and ATV television stations and various stars. Although this naturally makes the jokes funnier for local viewers, there's still enough effective general joviality to be enjoyed by outsiders, and the film is funny in a way which doesn't undermine the strengths of the plot.
With Mainland and Hong Kong genre fare becoming increasingly rare and watered down, Hong Kong Ghost Stories certainly comes as a welcome release. Though Classroom is average at best, Travel sees Patrick Kong working well within the form, and together the anthology should certainly be enjoyed by Hong Kong horror fans hankering for a reminder of the good old days of daft supernatural shenanigans.

Kept me frightfully entertained
How in the world did Wong Jing and Patrick Kong, Hong Kong's two most prolific movie directors, find the time to squeeze this little project into their busy schedules? I can't imagine, but I'm glad they did. "Hong Kong Ghost Stories" presents two 45-minute long tales of the macabre which differ greatly in style and tone but both deliver solid entertainment.
The Wong Jing-directed "Classroom" stars Jennifer Tse as Jennifer, a substitute teacher assigned to teach a very nasty roomful of students. The miscreants take great joy in tormenting poor Jennifer. We soon learn that these students are more than just unruly. The tale interestingly takes a turn into the realm of fairly orthodox Christian demonology, including showing disastrous consequences when Jennifer dabbles in Taoist solutions to her unholy problem. Jennifer Tse does a fine job as the tortured teacher and veteran actor Leung Ka Yan provides able support in the role of her father. "Classroom" has a crude, made-on-the-cheap, late '80s Hong Kong filmmaking feel to it, which fits its subject matter to a T.
Patrick Kong's "Travel" features Chrissie Chau as Bobo, traveling with a low-budget tour group to Thailand. Also in the tour group is a quartet of foul-mouthed, gossipy friends (Charmaine Fong, Harriet Yeung, Rose Chan and Jacqueline Chong) who fill the time with hilarious chit-chat about TVB and ATV shows and stars. Bobo seems to have a secret and the secret seems to have something to do with a photo showing her together with her boyfriend and another woman. The gossipy quartet will not rest until they've gotten to the bottom of the mystery, which turns out to be a very bad choice on their part. The story takes many twists and turns and just when we think that we've figured things out, it spins off in a different direction. It's a slick little tale of horror that kept me guessing until the end.
"Hong Kong Ghost Stories" is not the kind of movie that wins awards, but its twin tales of horror are sure to win fans
