Storyline

Nancy, a near-despicable Hong Kong girl who's bitchy and petulant, and even grifts money from Keith, a pathetic guy who blatantly adores her. After discovering him reading her mail (a common occurence, it would seem), it comes to light that her long-lost father, Andy Jihuai, is requesting a family reunion. With the promise of some sort of inheritance, Nancy travels to the ancestral rural home to find a passel of relatives she's never met, much less cares for. The eldest brother is Deon Ting, followed by single mother Deon, fourth brother Nick, fifth brother Jerry, sixth sister Linda, and eighth brother Ben. For those keeping score, Nancy qualifies as the seventh sister, while third brother Sam wasn't able to attend. Deon, the second sister,also dragged along her young daughter Fanny, and the manor has a crusty servant named Wong. These salient details are related to Nancy by Lawyer Cheung, who has other news to impart: Ting died shortly after sending the letters to his offspring, ... Written by darylc@tpg.com.au

a movie with tons of potential to be either a serious Horror movie
4 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

The movie to be honest would probably only scare a 10 year old. but the story is pretty cool and pretty interesting considering. i don't really know where the director was trying to go to cause it did have some funny corny moments but those moments actually felt it was trying to be serious.

Only if the director would of taken his work serious then i would turn out to be a awesome movie.

Overall i'm disappointed in the horror and comedy section which the movie is suppose to be... But for a okay thrilling movie with a good story which is not all that scary is for you.
