An eerie little gem...
9 September 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

... that keeps reinventing itself. You've never quite seen a film like this. It takes a while to get into the story, but the payoff is well worth it. The less said about the plot the better. It's a vibrant, spooky comic book come to life with a wonderful offbeat sensibility. Visible Secret has all the best elements of The X-Files, Sixth Sense, Jacob's Ladder and Scooby Doo. I'm definitely ready to explore more of Ann Hui's earlier work. Highly recommended.
