The legend:
Gods rule in Heaven, demons suffer in Hell, and men stride the earth. Bearing their sins, seeking enlightenment, all three realms follow the rules of karma. The Dark Crystal memorializes the demons' bitter spiritual quest. Once in each millennium, on July 15, when the moon is full. All beings can cross realms
through reincarnation. This millennium's reincarnation day draws near; Hell is sure to rumble.
===
Every person has three souls and seven spirits. Without life, the spirits can't exist. Without spirits, life can't thrive. The souls are the roots of the seven spirits. And the seven spirits are the branches and leaves of the souls. So what are these seven spirits? These spirits are actually the seven chakras of the body, from head to toe. Where human vitality lies. ... They are the spirits of Yin, Wisdom, Chi, Power, the Center, Brilliance and Essence.

The Snow Girl:
I don't know you... but I know who you are. You're the one in my brother's painting. You're Little Snow! Three years ago, you left without a word. Do you know how my brother pined for you, every day for the past three years? Every night that winter... He'd pass out drunk under the blossoming plum tree. When morning came, he'd be blanketed in snow. He didn't die... But it was like he lost his life when you left.
===
Zhong Kui... you are here. All love between humans and demons is bound to be star-crossed. And you, Xue Qing. Fell for a mix of both!

The Crystal:
Only you can restore the order of the three realms. Zhang Daoxian will use the Dark Crystal's power to destroy mankind. Tomorrow's full moon marks the end of human and demon realms. The Dark Crystal holds the record of our spiritual cultivation. Only once, every thousand years, on the 15th day of the 7th month. Do we have a chance to purge our sins and gain rebirth. Some become gods. And others remain demons. It is the work of the Dark Crystal. That decides these destinies.
-I'm a demon slayer. Killing your kind is all I know how to do. How can I save your world?

The ambition and the grudge:
Think about it. Who would still worship the gods if the world were at peace? No desire, no needs. Humans must have dreams in order to become believers. Now, with fear in their hearts, they'll need me.
-Zhang Daoxian. You're already a god. What more do you wish for?
You've never been to Heaven. You don't know how high the stairs reach. Am I a god lesser than any of those others? Why should I be the one stuck at the bottom? I've never even set foot in the Jade Emperor's Palace!

The demon slayer:
The mysteries of Heaven and Earth... The never-ending spiritual practice... The three realms and beyond.. The gold light shining from above... The invisible Tao... That which governs heaven and earth... Keep reciting... Your senses and spirit will benefit...
===
A great hero falling for a demon. You're no exception, even you ls "love" so mesmerizing? Is it worth it? Forever... and always... worth it. Zhong Kui, "Be calm and focused, and you shall gain true wisdom". None of your demon forms represent your true nature.
===
Zhong Kui, you're just a convenient pawn. You are nothing. Back then, you couldn't reincarnate because you reeked of resentment. Not because your will was strong. I made all that up to fool you. You don't have a soul, and I'm the one keeping your spirits intact. Tomorrow... after the Dark Crystal is opened. All the people's spirits will be taken from them. Earth will become a land of the walking dead. It'll be the greatest
crime in human history.

Big budget fantasy Chinese folklore on the deadly battle between demon slayer Zhong Kui (鍾馗) and a powerful ambitious deity in the war to possess the magical "Dark Crystal (a receptacle for the captured souls)." In the mix were Zhong Kui' romance with the "Snow Girl" and his origin. Not the best but good CGI and animation. Great entertainment if you like supernatural mythology films. See a review in "Summary."
