THE latest horror comedy from Singapore, The Ghosts Must Be Crazy, throws together two very different supernatural funnies – The Day Offand Ghost Bride – for a rib-tickling time at the cinema.
A movie by J Team Productions, the horror comedy is produced by Jack Neo and co-directed by Boris Boo and Mark Lee, who also stars alongside Singaporean household names like Wang Lei, John Cheng, Henry Thia and Dennis Chew.
The Day Off is directed by Boo (Phua Chu Kang The Movie) and tells of two men slated to go for their annual in-camp training, where they meet a Platoon Commander who puts them through a series of rigorous exercises.
The two guys – Ah Nan (Cheng) and Ah Lei (Wang) – decide to play a trick on their Platoon Commander in revenge, but a series of strange things starts to happen.
The second story Ghost Bride is directed by the first-time director Lee, a well-loved comedian in Singapore.
The story tells of Ah Hui (Thia), who is unlucky in love, meeting a stranger called Ah Hai (Lee) who promises him fortune and blessings if he seeks help from the netherworld.
Doing so, Ah Hui strikes the lottery, but spends it all lavishly. Down in the dumps again, he turns to his new-found friend for another solution, but strange events begin to unfold.
In conjunction with the movie’s release in local cinemas, there will be a series of meet-the-fans sessions, where fans get to meet Neo, Lee and Wang.
Tomorrow, they will be interviewed live on Chinese radio station 988 at 3pm.
At 7.15pm, the trio will make an appearance at the Berjaya Time Square concourse in Kuala Lumpur, where fans can join them at a Dress Up Scare Party and take part in a ticket redemption at 7.30pm to attend the gala premiere at GSC Berjaya Times Square on the same night.
