The dark/black figure/person that constantly appears in the film when the characters die is the Daoist (Chinese religion) form of the Grim Reaper. In Daoist belief, there are two Grim Reapers, the White and Black "Wu Chang". The Black Reaper is the one that escorts the newly dead to the "other world" of "afterlife". See more »

In Hong Kong, the eighteen years old Wong Kar Mun (Lee Sin-je) has been blind since she was two years old. She submits to a surgery of cornea transplantation, and while recovering from the operation, she realizes that she is seeing dead people. With the support of Dr. Wah (Lawrence Chou), Mun tries to find who was the donor of her eyes and resolve the mystery of her visions.
"Jian gui" is really a very scary movie. Without being gore, the Pang brothers use visual and sound effects to create a frightening atmosphere. The result is magnificent and I really appreciated this film a lot. The first half of the story is amazingly scary, with the ghosts and the shadow man surprising Mun and the viewers. I was watching this movie alone late of the night, in a very dark ambient, and I startled many times. I really believe that fans like me of "Haunted", "The Sixth Sense", "The Others", "Ringu" and "El Espinazo del Diablo" will like this movie, which I include among my favorite ghost stories. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "The Eye A Herança" ("The Eye The Heritage")
