Erotic Ghost Story (Chinese: 聊齋艷譚; pinyin: Liáo zhāi yàn tán) is a Hong Kong erotic film remake of the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick. Directed by Lam Ngai Kai and starring Amy Yip, So Man, Hitomi Kudo and Manfred Wong, it was released in 1990, though it was first screened in 1987 at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain.

Synopsis[edit]

Erotic Ghost Story revolves around three fairies (played by Yip, Man and Kudô) who have attained human form. Upon helping a hapless scholar, the trio begin to have lustful thoughts about him. This soon leads to many erotic romps and the eventual discovery that he is a dangerous demon.

Impact[edit]

Erotic Ghost Story was a breakthrough film for Amy Yip, who went on to have a career starring in similarly sexy roles such as Sex and Zen, garnering a cult following of fans in the process. The film was also followed by three sequels, which only the last-two were unrelated in plot. Erotic Ghost Story II is particularly notable for featuring Anthony Wong Chau Sang in an early role.
