“Goldbuster” is a goofy movie, but it’s fun. Following around a bunch of poor apartment dwellers who think they’re being haunted could’ve been the plot of an Amblin movie in the 1980s. Played to full effect in modern Asian cinema, it almost feels too mean at times. Thankfully, the film knows what to do with its amazing cast of characters. Balancing between hi-jinks, outright comedy and heart-warming goofiness, Goldbuster finds its way.
If you dig that sort of thing, then I recommend picking it up. I’m still waiting for Well Go to put it out on disc, but oh well.

The Plot Thus Far
A quirky internet star, a pair of retired gangsters, and the black sheep of a prolific family of herbalists are a few of the oddball tenants that call the dilapidated apartments of Humble Grove home. Fearful of being locked out by a ruthless property developer with his eye on the building, they’ve stayed inside for years. So, when supernatural incidents befall them all on one night, instead of running, they turn to flamboyant ghost hunter Golden Ling to perform a most unusual exorcism.
