In the scene where Tun and Jane examine ghost photos affixed to a wall, there is a enlarged photo of a ghost standing near bookshelves with tables in the foreground. This is a screenshot from the Williard Library "ghostcam". The Willard Library is located in Evansville, Indiana USA and in recent years, has become very popular for its website where visitors can view the webcam surveilance 24 hours a day for paranormal activity.

This Asian horror film starts off with a young couple (Tun and Jane) driving back from a get-together late one night and hitting a girl that suddenly appears on the road. This may sound very cliché to seasoned horror fans, but what ensues in the film is anything but. Tun (Ananda Everingham) is a professional photographer. He starts noticing some strange flaws in his pictures. This is the beginning of the best ghost story I've ever seen, with truly amazing special effects (so good they make you feel that they're really happening and not just concocted for the movie), excellent acting, lavish production, a creative plot with some great surprises, and just enough blood to justify an R rating (oh, and. Ananda is not only a great actor; he's eye candy!)
If you're not put off by having to read subtitles, you'll absolutely love this movie. If you are, I recommend that you try to muddle through them because, believe me, it'll be worth your while.
A true gem and a DVD that I am proud to have in my horror collection. Perfection!
