This movie will mess you up for life!
31 August 2003 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Ok, I've never been at a screening where 6 people actually have to get up and leave, and 2 people throw up because the gore is just that sickening. If you're looking for a movie that is unlike any horror movie you've ever seen, (and yes, I do mean very very disturbing, in such a sense that you really begin to appreciate how precious life is afterwards), then watch this film. The only problem with calling this a horror film is that the horror genre doesn't even come close to describing what type of movie this is.

Pearry Teo is the next king of suspense/horror cinema.
