Return to the famous haunted house at No. 81 Chaonei in The House That Never Dies II, the unrelated sequel to the 2014 blockbuster that broke Chinese box office records for horror films. Producer Gordon Chan and Zombie Fight Club director Joe Chien take over at the helm of the horror thriller inspired by stories surrounding a notorious mansion that housed an ill-fated warlord's family during the Republican era. Julian Cheung (S Storm), Gillian Chung (The Wasted Times) and Mei Ting (Blind Massage) take dual roles in a bone-chilling story connecting the past and present of The House That Never Dies.
Amid the chaos of the late Republican period, marshal Zhang Jinsheng (Julian Cheung) is forced to marry Ji Jincui (Gillian Chung), the daughter of a mutinous warlord (Jack Kao). Soon, strange things start happening at 81 Chaonei, and baby corpses appear around the city. As panic spreads, fingers point to Ji's original wife Niu Menghe (Mei Ting) as the culprit behind the baby corpse cases. Niu mysteriously disappears and the residents of 81 Chaonei die overnight, leaving behind a dilapidated ghost house. A century later, restorer Song Teng (Julian Cheung) digs up a large number of baby skeletons and cursed talismans while doing renovation work at 81 Chaonei. The past begins to haunt the present as Song, his wife He Fei (Mei Ting) and colleague Lin Yao (Gillian Chung) encounter increasingly strange events in the house.
