Storyline

When the leading dancer of Lola is murdered in her dressing room on the very night of the premiere, terror looms over the dance troupe. With the murderer still at large, the coveted role of Lola passes to Tian, a talented but introverted dancer with a traumatic childhood. Suspicion fanned by jealousy soon leads to hostility and rejection from fellow dancers, while figments of childhood memories start haunting her every dream. Tian can only seek solace in the arms of her gaffer boyfriend Zhen. As the murderer strikes again, Tian begins to realize that all the slayings are somehow related to her. No sooner is she inextricably sucked into the curse of the role than she starts suspecting Zhen may actually be harboring a horrifying secret behind these murders and the troupe itself.

Visually haunting obtuse film moves too slow to make you care
2 September 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Billed and seemingly marketed as a horror film or at least a thriller this story has a young woman taking over for the lead actress in a theater company when the lead actress dies. The woman is prone to nightmares and she is having weird visions while her boyfriend stands by her. A long 90 minutes this is a movie moves at a snails pace. Its all look and little else. Visually haunting the film still has me feeling eerie some hours after watching it even as I am totally at a loss to really know what the plot was. Obtuse is putting it mildly. Even the final sequence which seems to spell things out of place seems to me to play more like a WTF moment then the haunting image that precedes it. Creepy and haunting but not very good.
