Grueling, well acted and alarming horror thriller from Hong Kong that is one of the most shocking films to ever come from Asia. Director-Editor Fruit Chan has made one sick little movie that doesn't really have much gore but disturbing subject matter to make the viewer a little queasy. There is some dark humor to propel the sickening atmosphere of this movie that makes this little film one controversial shocker. The cinematography is well crafted and the direction is quite nifty, this movie will guaranteed to mess with your mind once it's over.
