Time Out says

One hundred years later, as promised in Part One, the androgynous tree demon returns, this time to terrorise a timid Buddhist monk (Leung) and his elderly master. Surprisingly enough, history repeats itself almost exactly. Glam wraith Lotus (Wang) tries to snare the virginal prey but complicates matters by falling in love with him. The Taoist end of things is held up by Yin (Cheung), a mercenary swordsman. Anyone who saw the other episodes will find this inexpressibly tedious, despite three plus factors: Tony Leung's performance, a brilliant opening scene (the funniest severed limb gags since Monty Python and the Holy Grail) and a great theme song.
