For Godfrey's sake
16 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Production designer: Godfrey Ho. Script: Benny Ho (also Godfrey, I'm led to believe). Tangerine Dream on the soundtrack. This is surely a Godfrey Ho film, right? I've got to admit, it is rather cohesive if it is him.

There's no ninjas here. This is a dark thriller about a girl who gets out of jail after eight years (for murdering someone), and finds herself a job at a newspaper. It becomes immediately clear that something isn't right, however. Someone puts razor blades in her soap, for instance, which leads to flashbacks to the abuse she endured in prison. She makes cakes for a bake off but glass ends up in the mix, leading to a kid spewing up blood! But who is responsible for this? Is it the assistant editor of the newspaper? The photographer? Someone from her prison life? And where is the editor of the newspaper, who offered her the job in the first place? I'm not saying, but you should check it out, as the film has hanged monkeys, maggot ridden corpses, stabbing and a beheading as all part of the fun. Tangerine Dream's Phaedra plays heavily through the last half of the film and it works really well. I'm sure Edgar got paid for this, right? This is a dark, dark film, and well worth a watch, I'd say.
