I can’t really tell what, precisely, is going down in the full trailer for the Taiwanese horror flick “The Ghost Tales”, but that doesn’t matter to me. The film features a guy who magically transforms into a goat, and, sadly, this is all I require from my motion pictures. If you’ve got someone shapeshifting into a goat, then we’re good. Seriously. Send me an email.
Here’s a ridiculously long synopsis:
After being discharged from the army, Chuan brings a lost goat home as no one claims it. On his way to the station, the goat starts talking and tells him an ancient Chinese ghost story… Yet, Chuan finds himself on a train. He tells the young girl beside him about this bizarre dream. The girl seems uninterested in his accosting. But when she sees that Chuan has a goat with him on the platform, she laughs. Because of this incident, they become a couple. One day, Chuan’s younger sister, Qi, is playing around with little stones near unidentified urns. Qi starts hearing strange sounds, asking her to give the stones back. However, the siblings don’t take this seriously. On a routine workday, Chuan accidentally discovers an invaluable bonsai being treated like trash at a millionaire’s mansion. To possess the bonsai, he undergoes several challenges. Yet, trimming is needed before the bonsai can be sold at a high price. He is hence entangled deeply in the intricate mysteries and eventually causes him a deadly setback. Meanwhile, Qi is scared by the calls for the stones so she puts some other stones near the urns. At night, the ghost calls out in anger. Qi is terrified and clears out all items from the house to avoid the sounds. In the nearly empty apartment, when the siblings are making tea, Chuan teases, “if this ghost can turn the sound of boiling water into “Give me back my stone”, I will fight the ghost myself for you”. After a brief pause, it’s Qi who suddenly starts to mumbles “Give me back my stone …” Chuan, understanding what is going on, goes finding a baseball bat and walks toward Qi. Yet, the most unexpected twist is about to be revealed by the goat which Chuan has brought back home, because it starts talking again.
Holy crap that’s a lot of text. Did you process all of that? If not, don’t worry about it. All you need to know is that a guy turns into a goat. That’s it. “The Ghost Tails” opens in Taiwan on September 7th, 2012. When you’re ready, the trailer awaits.
