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. Written by
A dancer is murdered and suspicion falls on the lucky young woman who replaces her in the troupe the murdered woman worked in. Tensions rise as the young lovely replacement runs afoul of her new coworkers. Eventually she begins having bad dreams and becomes suspicious of her boy friend's sincerity. This is a very slow, tedious movie....too slow for a flick that's supposed to be a thriller. In Asia it's clear that the movie was marketed on the looks of its star, Yuan Tian. But even this young beauty can add little interest to this wanna-be creep show. There is little sex, despite the efforts of commercial interests to suggest it's hot, and even fewer scares. You might end up thinking the Curse of Lola was the fact that you watched it.
