An amusement park reopens after a deadly accident fourteen years prior. But although the park is back in business, that doesn't mean it's safe, and when a young boy goes missing, a group of his friends set out to find him.
Yen's brother Alan has been missing for six days.Somehow, it is connected to an amusement park where a girl died 14 years ago in a ferris wheel accident. Their mother, who has the power to capture ghosts with a camera, believes he is dead, but Yen decides to go to the park to look for him. Along with friends Yen is chased out by a watchman. But they ignore his warnings and, one by one, they die. Written by
I've seen some dodgy HK movies in my time, but this has to rank pretty highly in the roll-call of stinkers. An unstructured, clumsily-paced mess from start to finish, with little in the way of a plot and so much thunderous noise and self-conscious 'scary stuff' that it never comes close to creating the quietly unsettling atmosphere needed to set up the viewer for a scare. The bargain-basement 3-D effects (a surprise considering CGI-fiend Andrew Lau's involvement) simply don't work on a DVD viewing (and providing only one pair of glasses is pretty cheap!) due to the poor colour balance. I will think twice before snapping up any more gimmicky films from bargain bins...
