The title of this movie is quite blatant and truly earns its MA rating.This is most definitely a movie for adults only considering the numberof nudity scenes that are in it. The western mind has a conception thatthe naked body is not good to look at. In a way I agree and in anotherI disagree. Firstly, with our sinful nature, the naked body inciteslust with in us and leads us into sexual sin. On the other hand God didcreate the naked body and it is a thing of beauty. To me the naked bodyis a thing of beauty, but it is not lustful, but I will not go intothat.<br><br>There are a few interesting things in this movie, the main thing I wishto discuss is sex. First though I wish to outline the plot so that weknow what is going on. Three vixen spirits must abstain from pointlesslust for thirty-six days or else they will revert to their former vixenform and remain that way for eternity. So they go on a retreat tomeditate. One of them, So So, goes into a temple of the god Wulung andlusts over him. She is then later met by a Taoist who warns her thatbecause she is not human it is dangerous for her to do such things. Sheignores his warning and later her and her two sisters, Fe Fe and FeiFei, meet a scholar whom they fall in love with. I won't go intoanything else for I might give away too much of the movie. One maythink that there is no plot and this movie is just an excuse forexplicit sex scenes, but it is not. There is a very interesting plotbehind it.<br><br>Sex in this movie is seen as evil. The scholar cries out to So So whenshe begins to seduce him that she is chaste and virtuous and is notsupposed to do this. This is true, yet it is not. She is not married tothe guy and thus her action is not an act of love but rather one ofself-satisfying lust – the thing that they are supposed to abstainfrom. Sex on the other hand is not evil, God created it for marriedcouples: "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother andbecome united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." (Gen 2:24).This is before the fall of humanity (Gen 3) and thus it was given to usby God as a gift to enjoy with our husband or wife. Further, Paulcommands us: "Do not deprive each other (husband and wife) except for atime, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come togetheragain so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of selfcontrol" (1 Cor 7:5,6). Of course all of this is pigs to the pearls,but through this I hope to show you that there is nothing evil withsex, just with the way it is used.<br><br>Erotic Ghost Story is a Hong Kong version of Witches of Eastwick. Theplots are a little similar, though the unfolding of the story comes alittle differently. In Witches, the three women are just single womenwho are seduced by a witch while in Erotic Ghost Story the women arespirits. The scenes are much more explicit in this movie, but this isthe Americanism trying to blind us to the truth. In some ways theexplicity of this movie is bad, but Hong Kong cinema is much moredaring than Hollywood and that is why I like it.
