Slick ,thoroughly engaging suspense thriller
21 December 2005 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

Slick, throughly engaging suspenser thriller with Joey Wang and Brigitte Lin. Almost the entire film is set inside one house, but director David Chung, working with producer Tsui Hark, stages every twist and turn with such undivided focus and relish that he creates unbearable tension and fools us into thinking that it all makes perfect sense. Some of the plot developments are highly fanciful, but the bluish tint of the visuals and the sumptuous production design smooth over the minor misjudgments. The tone is drop dead serious and the murders are gory and inventive. Ex-cinematographer David Chung ("Painted Faces") has a potent directorial signature and never quite allows the visuals to dominate. Wang, playing twin sisters, is superb and gorgeous, and Lin, in an atypical role, has great screen authority. Elizabeth Lee, as Mimi, is ultra-sexy. There are many good reasons to see this, not the least being the carnally mouth-watering cast members.
