Trailer Watch: Hell Is A Game Show In Mark Lee-Directed Supernatural Rom-Com Running Ghost

The made-in-Hongkong movie opens in cinemas on April Fool’s Day.

Hell looks a lot like a variety show.

At least that’s how Mark Lee imagines the nether world in his new movie, Hell Bank Presents Running Ghost, which debuted its trailer on Saturday (Mar 20) on the Golden Horse Award-nominated performer’s Facebook page. The Hongkong-set, Cantonese-language (but dubbed Mandarin here) supernatural rom-com, directed by Lee, is set to release Apr 1.

Wong You Nam (The Midnight After) stars as a bloke who dies and winds up in the hereafter. To return the land of the living, he has to win a reality game show called Running Ghost (is this the afterworld’s Running Man?). To do that, he turns to a teenage psychic (She Remembers, He Forgets’ Cecilia So) for help. And guess what happens next?
