英雄叛國

北齊大將婁思好及杜仲遠得山巫預言,謂思好將被封為王,甚至登極為帝。北齊皇高琳果封思好為王、仲遠為侯。思好妻子藍英玲得知山巫預言,力勸思好弒君奪位。時皇帝到北原狩獵,思好乘夜弒君,並誣告太子為主謀。仲遠雖不相信,但為謀良策假意追捕太子。登位後思好即命統領梁羽風追殺仲遠,仲遠救兒子杜威後自刎而亡。登極之日,思好見仲遠鬼魂出現,嚇至魂不附體。英玲為滅口刺死羽風,她惶恐終日,彷彿洗不淨滿手鮮血,又怕鬼魂復仇。時不利傳言散播軍中,杜威與前朝太子亦合兵進攻。最後英玲被仲遠、羽風及高琳三鬼合力吊死;思好迎戰杜威不敵,垂死中怪責山巫,山巫反指他是被心魔及慾念所害。眾鬼魂再現,思好萬念俱灰從城樓跌斃。
