Strange Shaw Movie
10 June 2006 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS AHEAD*** Quite a strange movie, quite different than the standard kung-fu flicks that Shaw Brothers is famous for. This movie is more of a supernatural thriller, but in the end, it turns out that there is nothing supernatural at all, it was all a setup by various characters.

A sick and abused wife, and her new chambermaid murder the husband. There is now a hex on the wife, and she is tormented by the ghost of her husband. Turns out the husband and chambermaid are in it together, trying to scare the sick wife to death.

The story is average, acting is weak in some parts, no real scares, pretty slow moving. Still an interesting watch, and I will watch the sequels soon: Hex Vs. Withcraft, and Hex After Hex, if only to see if there really is a hex this time... I give it 6/10.
