Wasn't worth my time
16 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Version: Cantonese, with English subtitles (by SBS)

Wow. Talk about a dull movie. I figured a Hong-Kong horror movie with a silly name like 'Horror Hotline... Big Head Monster' being shown on the SBS cult-movie time slot could not possibly be bad. All the other cult-horror movies shown SBS are generally pretty good. Maybe I expected too much, but 'Horror Hotline' is just a boring movie.

The Horror Hotline is a radio show that discusses the supernatural. Several callers talk about a big-headed infant they've seen, and the Horror Hotline reporters decide to investigate this, when, naturally, everything starts getting spooky.

I don't know why, but I just could not get into 'Horror Hotline'. It seems like it could be a great eerie horror film, but I just found it rather boring, and it left no lasting effect afterwards.

'Horror Hotline' could be something that I'll try to watch some other time. I may even enjoy it if I'm given enough time between viewings. As it stands, I thought it was rather dull. I'd still recommend it to other horror fans though, maybe you'll get more out of this than I did
