Song Dangping, is a revolutionary, who also works as an actor. His love interest is Li Xiaoxia, but this love is strongly opposed by her father. Tang Jun, a thug and suitor of Xiaoxia, pours nitric acid onto Song Dangping out of jealousy, permanently disfiguring his face and hands, turning him into a "monster". Troubled by his appearance, Song spreads the rumor of his own death. Xiaoxia becomes emotionally and mentally disturbed at the news of Song's "death". Song lives in the seclusion of the theatre attic, only coming out to sing every midnight, comforting a mentally disabled Xiaoxia with his song. China's first horror film sounds eerily like a warped Phantom of the Opera.

DVD-R is in Chinese with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 118 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
