A bleak and creepy HK horror adventure.
2 May 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a creepy little horror adventure from director Po-Chih Leong, where a teacher and his students run into a horrible nightmare after camping at an island off the coast of Hong Kong that is inhabited by a mysterious woman and her three, malevolent sons.

The film gains much momentum from start to finish and much of the suspense and horror takes place on the island. The amount of misfortune our protagonists run into may be disturbing to the viewers and their run-ins with the evil doers are pretty savage to look at. This really defines the horror element of this type of movie genre - all the creepiness, suspense and thrills all built up without the overload of gore.

The mystery and the awe of terror surrounding the family on the island and the amount of fear the teacher and students experience will send chills down your spine. However, while intriguing, the acting was a little sub-par and this movie could have use some humor and redeeming moments, instead of just pure horror and depressing stuff. However, hardcore horror movie fans should enjoy this movie.

Grade C+
