Grim and grimmer, Hong Kong-style.
7 December 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

A nasty little film that starts off relatively light-heartedly, only to render the impending violence all the more savage and effective when things start to go wrong for the small group of students that have chosen the wrong island to go camping on. This is a satisfying and surprisingly well-executed offering, avoiding some of the more obvious excesses of gore that an American version would include yet more than compensating by virtue of its dark, grim tone and the disturbingly realistic grimness of its villains-- definitely recommended for fans of above-average horror flicks, and worth hunting down.
