Review : Nightmares In Precinct 7

Nightmares In Precinct 7 (HK 2001)

Andy Hui plays a top cop in this entertaining film who is left in a coma after a bust goes wrong. When he awakes from his coma two years later he finds he can see ghosts, which is a cool if slightly mysterious side-effect. He can also see the cute nurse Loletta Lee who of course has fallen for him.

Andy is finally discharged and returns to his crime team with his buddy Simon Lui who is struggling with a serial killer case of a guy who kidnaps, rapes and then kills nurses. Oh and what was Loletta's occupation again? You know it would be an amazing co-incidence if she was the next target...

With the help of a funny ghost (Cheung Tat Ming) at the hospital Andy manages to track down the killer, but he is too late as he has already struck and carried off Loretta to do unspeakable things we won't speak of. Can Andy save her before those unspeakable things are carried out?

A really pretty good film, the supernatural angle isn't overplayed and its mostly a solid cop drama with plenty of cool and fun moments.
