Out of the Dark, also known as Wui wan yeh (回魂夜; lit. "Night of Returning Soul"), is a 1995 Hong Kong comedy film directed by Jeffrey Lau, starring Stephen Chow and Karen Mok.


Out of the Dark has earned a reputation as Stephen Chow's darkest film yet, adding brutal violence, gore, blood, and the wealth of black humor also including Chow's signature nonsense jokes. The film was directed by Hong Kong's Jeffrey Lau. Stephen Chow is Leo, a mental patient/ghostbuster who is a parody of the character Léon from the 1994 French film The Professional who talks to his plant for assistance, co-starring Karen Mok as Ah Kwan, a curious young girl who gets caught up with all the spooky situations. The pair are then joined by a brigade of quirky security guards in an attempt to get rid of the evil lurking in a supposedly haunted apartment building situated in Hong Kong.[1]
