"It has been a long time since I film such movie and I love Hong Kong horror films all along. (Afraid of ghost?) Yes, when small but no longer when growing up."

When asked if he will be frightening people or vice-versa, Julian said: "Herman Yau (邱禮濤) is the director and it is quite amusing. There is some killing and dismemberment scenes. (You will dismember people?) Yes, it is very interesting and I do not try it before. It gives me a chance now and I am looking forward to it now. Please let me become a freak for once."
