surprisingly subtle-and effective
24 January 2002 | by (oxford england) – See all my reviews

hong kong films are many things -but subtlety is not their strong point. even the most brutal movies from there seem to cram in a bit of silly humour-see the untold story for an example. here is something else though..... influenced more by the japanese ring series than any hong kong film this film starts with an american film crew making a documentary on a popular hong kong radio series in which listeners tell ghost stories. this time a man phones in giving details of a childhood encounter with a baby with a deformed head,kept in a cage near his school. from here the film and radio crew attempt to look into this urban legend and terrifying things start to happen....... this film has a genuinely unnerving atmosphere,some moments that will make you jump and a choice of 2 endings that are very much in the blair witch style. some people might be put off by the fact that a lot of loose ends are not tied up but that just adds to the mystery of it all. don't be put off by the silly name-this is a hong kong horror that really delivers.
