When mentioned about the “ghost king” Edmond Poon (潘紹聰), everyone is definitely reminded of him hosting the shows related to supernatural theme one after another. As the film producer of the new horror movie, Blinding Souls (綁靈), he shared his unbelievable experiences and disclosed a secret to increase the atmosphere at the drama set, during an interview.

Blinding Souls film is directed by Chan Pang-Chun (陳鵬振) while Carlos Chan (陳家樂) and Tsao Yu Ning (曹佑寧) played the main leads. Based on the plot, four undergraduates paid a visit to their old school which was invaded by Japanese army to use as a laboratory in the past. Since then, many eerie incidents started to happen and they happened to see an old dairy in the storage room. It recorded many strange happenings and a student went missing suddenly. The contents appeared to be hiding a secret.

Edmond played a role character in the movie and hoped everyone would be completed focused: “The film director and I planned some scenes such as placing a prop in the toilet but we did not tell them the exact cubicle, in order for the group to act naturally.”

As the location shooting took place at Bangkok. Edmond was reminded of taking a small mahjong set when travelling to Bangkok with three friends in the past: “Once at night, we decided to play mahjong since there was nothing to do. I sat down facing the wardrobe while my friends’ back faced the wardrobe. Around 3am to 4am, we heard a “knocking” sound from the wardrobe and a baby crying as well. We felt scared, stopped playing it immediately and slept together in the same room. Subsequently, I checked with the local people and realised gambling was forbidden especially at night in Thailand. Perhaps we are causing disturbances and it want us to stop gambling.”

Edmond also disclosed some special taboo in the hotel: “We should stand one side before knocking the door so it will have space to move. It is best to sleep on one bed if there is two single beds so as to leave the space for them.”

Mentioning about the weird incidents in the office, Edmond replied he had several encounters: “Before moving to this current office, we used to work at level 8 in an industrial building at Kowloon Bay. The long corridor is an old style pattern and many guests feel eerie whenever going over there. After doing an investigation, we realise one unit is haunted and he was a middle-aged man and either hanged himself in that unit or the back stairs. Perhaps it is because of business failure.”

Therefore, it explained the reason of some people saw a spirit was seen at the back stairs. Edmond expressed he had not witness it personally until seeing a black shadow glancing at his colleagues and him from the glass door, but there was nobody when opening the door.

In addition, Edmond believed that everyone placed more attention to the haunted house and needed to check the history before renting and buying a house and unit as well: “However, the information might not be completely accurate especially about the haunted houses. The secret is hidden if the victim is sent to the hospital for treatment and nobody reports to the police. Once, I heard that somebody jumped down from the building and tried to check with the agent, but he had no idea.”

Finally, Edmond added his colleague felt uncomfortable with his sitting position which faced the back stairs: “He is smart and changes the wallpaper in his computer to his religion showing a buddha. It faces the back stairs and he feels much better after that.” Edmond suggested it was best to place a painting or an ornament to calm one down if there was a need to.
